Friends in Christ Weekly Message
April 3, 2004

This week our message is two selections from the Palm Sunday Liturgy of the Palms. -Bill Samuel
I praise the Lord
for answering my prayers and saving me.
The stone that the builders tossed aside
has now become the most important stone.

The Lord has done this, and it is amazing to us.
This day belongs to the Lord!
Let's celebrate and be glad today.
We'll ask the Lord to save us!
We'll sincerely ask the Lord to let us win.

God bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
We praise you from here in the house of the Lord.

The Lord is our God, and he has given us light!
Start the celebration!
March with palm branches all the way to the altar.

The Lord is my God!
I will praise him and tell him how thankful I am.

Tell the Lord how thankful you are,
because he is kind and always merciful.
Psalm 118:21-29 (CEV*)

     When Jesus had finished saying all this, he went on toward Jerusalem. As he was getting near Bethphage and Bethany on the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples on ahead. He told them, "Go into the next village, where you will find a young donkey that has never been ridden. Untie the donkey and bring it here. If anyone asks why you are doing that, just say, 'The Lord needs it.'"
     They went off and found everything just as Jesus had said. While they were untying the donkey, its owners asked, "Why are you doing that?"
     They answered, "The Lord needs it."
     Then they led the donkey to Jesus. They put some of their clothes on its back and helped Jesus get on. And as he rode along, the people spread clothes on the road in front of him. When Jesus was starting down the Mount of Olives, his large crowd of disciples were happy and praised God because of all the miracles they had seen. They shouted,
    Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!
    Peace in heaven and glory to God.
     Some Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, make your disciples stop shouting!"
     But Jesus answered, "If they keep quiet, these stones will start shouting."
Luke 19:28-40 (CEV*)
