Restoring Worship

Henry Schorr/ The Week that Changed the World

This sermon examines Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem which is recorded in Matthew 21 As He entered the city Jesus no longer constrained the praises of the people. He accepted it all, for the time of His coronation had come. On this day, Jesus declared "I am your Lord and King". On this day, Jesus essentially said, "From this day forward, I welcome your praise and worship". So, what does it mean to worship God and why does God want our worship? Is there worship that is pleasing to God and worship that isn't? Even more importantly, who or what are we really worshiping? This study of the Palm Sunday narrative will reveal answers to these questions.
