Children’s Message April 2nd, 2023

This is the season of Lent….. the time we get ready to celebrate the mystery of Easter….. the time we are on the way to Jerusalem. But who will show us the way? Jesus shows us the way.
Once every year the people of God go up to Jerusalem, to celebrate the feast of the Passover, to remember how God lead them through the waters to freedom. This year as Jesus traveled to Jerusalem…….. people hoped he would be their king. When they heard Jesus was near Jerusalem, they ran to him and shouted, “ Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord.” They put their cloaks and palm branches on the road to prepare a way for Jesus and shouted:
“Hosanna in the highest!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
I wonder how Jesus felt when the crowd wanted him to be their king?……….
I wonder why Jesus the King rode in a donkey instead of a horse?…………
I wonder what kind of king Jesus would be?………..
