We had a good day at church today! Doris, Kathi and I had put together an Easter party for kids fifth grade and under following the service, with an Easter Egg hunt, craft, games, lunch and a message for the kids that ended up bringing out a ton of kids. Even the children’s choir saw its biggest performance in years with twenty kids up on the platform waving their palm leaves and singing a couple songs they’ve been practicing! Micah (my oldest) did fantastic! All three boys had a blast at the party, each coming home with a bag full of eggs. Good times!
Meanwhile, in adult world, I gave the message today. Oddly enough, I went ahead and preached on the events of Palm Sunday. : ) Actually, I love talking on the subject, so it was fun for me to prepare. The above video is a clip that I used before the message began, and then I used the verse at the end of it as kind of my theme verse:
Proverbs 26:12 (NKJV) – Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
I zeroed in on people’s wrong assumptions about who Christ was and what His role was and is – and how because of it, He wept at what they were missing out on.
