************ Children's Sermon on Luke 23:27-31 ************

By: Rev. Adrian Dieleman

This sermon was preached on April 17, 2011

I Today Is Palm
What do we call this Sunday? PALM SUNDAY
What did the people of Israel do? WAVED PALM BRANCHES
What did they say/yell/sing? HOSANNA
So, we are being just like the people of Israel. We wave palm branches and sing "Hosanna."

II David's Throne & Crown
The people of Israel was so excited because they thought Jesus was king. King of Israel. A King just like David Who would defeat all their enemies. A King Who would wear David's crown and sit on David's throne in David's city.

III A Crown of Thorns
Jesus did not come to wear David's crown.
Jesus came to wear a different crown. TAKE OUT CROWN OF THORNS
This is the crown Jesus came to wear.
He came into Jerusalem to suffer and die. On the cross. For our sins.
