Sunday, March 29, 2015 Palm Sunday

Psalm, Chapter 22, verse 24:
24 You who fear the LORD, give praise! All descendants of Jacob, give honor; show reverence, all descendants of Israel!

Image result for Shema YisraelThis verse was fulfilled on Palm Sunday, which we reflect on today, with Christ’s triumphant entrance into Jerusalem. 

Let us this week honor and praise our Lord Jesus Christ everyday as we rise by saying Shema Yisrael which is the same prayer the Christ most likely prayed every morning Himself and is still prayed by pious Jews today.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one; and you shall love the Lord you God with all your Heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.

My question is how does, one Love the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind and strength.

Perhaps to understand this better we should ask ourselves:

1.      What are the desires of our heart?
2.      Whose flag are we following?
3.      What consumes our mind?
4.      How do we use our gifts?

God created us to be a priestly people and the world was designed to be our temple. We will never find true happiness except through God because He hardwired us for the priesthood. We are called to make an offering of our life.

Today we memorialize Christ’s entry into Jerusalem with palms.  Let us offer daily to our Lord in the morning our dreams & desires, our total loyalty to Him and His church, our thoughts and the gifts of mind and body He has given us.
