The palm frond journey and royal carpet of leaves leads ultimately to the sacrifice.
The Lamb of God (God’s own Son, part of Divine Trinity) has ‘freely’ given His human Life for a suffering, sin-sick, world.
At the end of all the agony and suffering sorrows. ‘ IT IS FINISHED. ‘ He cried from the Cross.
No more is necessary from frail humanity. He has done it!
Pardon and FORGIVENESS of SINS for all humankind (made in God’s Image).
No one has to DO anything else to be forgiven of their sins. SIMPLY ACCEPT THE SACRIFICE.
Accept this Act of LOVE , Follow Him and because of that LOVE our lives will be totally different.
But we cannot remain at the foot of the Cross. We need to return there all the days of our lives. His redemptive Blood was poured out. We must return to accept ongoing forgiveness because all our lives we remain with a sin nature.
We must not remain there or try to live there or the palm frond journey cannot continue.
A needing world plagued by sickness and death cannot remain at the Cross and neither can we.
STAND UP! LOVE HIM ALONE!
But there is much more!!
SO MUCH MORE.
REDEMPTIVE LOVE does not stay at the foot of the blood-soaked cross.
