“And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee (Matthew 21:9-11).”

Hosanna

The word, “Hosanna” is used to express adoration, praise, or joy. When Jesus made His triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, He was met with great adoration by the people who placed palm leaves in His pathway. This expression of adoration, praise and joy leading up to the crucifixion, symbolizes the victory that Jesus would gain on the cross. Palm Sunday is a time to celebrate Jesus’ journey to the cross, and the ultimate sacrifice that He made, that would be the greatest victory in Christianity. It is the beginning of the Holy Week leading up to Easter.

As we celebrate Palm Sunday, you need to understand your journey here on this earth. Remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for you, and that you have already overcome by His blood.
