Introduction to Sermon Outline:
Draw a comparison between a royal wedding and Jesus’ entry to Jerusalem as King on Palm Sunday. What are the similarities you see? What are the differences?
This sermon outline is based around 3 events that are connected to the Palm Sunday story.
1. Palm Sunday is symbolized by a colt (Mark 11:1-10)
*Jesus sent two disciples to a nearby village where they would find a colt that no man had ridden. (verse 1-2)
* They were to untie the colt and bring it to Jesus. If anyone were to ask what they were doing, they were to say that the Lord needed it and would return it shortly. (verse 2-6).
*It is noteworthy that Jesus was going to return the colt to its owner (verse 3).
* Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the colt in the midst of praise (verse 7-10), fulfilling an Old Testament prophecy confirming that He was Messiah and King. This is what the prophet Zechariah said.
“Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. (Zechariah 9:9)
* Highlight that Jesus’ kingship began with humility and sacrifice
Application from point 1 :
This Palm Sunday is Jesus the king of your entire life? If not, allow Him to be so.
