Soul Detox: From word to Word
The Palm Sunday story a combination of Jesus coming into town and people proclaiming Him as King by people knocked down by words and life circumstances that clamored for Jesus. They knew there was something about Jesus that would be healing and life giving. And Jesus usually showed up in those places other people didn't want to go. Jesus, the word of God in flesh, had come into town and it was quite a parade.
Palm Sunday can move to Good Friday. Words moved from building up to breaking down and death. Words can last and words can curse, but it's not the end of the story is it? This is holy week, my friends and we journey with Jesus, the word of God, the word become flesh. And from that cross to a tomb, Jesus lays there for you and for me. And these words come out. The tomb is empty, he is risen, he is risen. The word remains alive. And death itself cannot be constrained by the love of Jesus.
