Palm Sunday (3)

The Ruler entered
humble on a donkey
– an untrained donkey
that he could calm.
The crowd praised now
but soon abused, rejected
this mighty, righteous,
soon shown to be victorious
Ruler of the universe,
remover of earth’s curse,
before whom all will
bend the knee –
so bow, adore
before
he comes again.

‘Good’ Friday?

Ugly, unjust
excruciating execution
– ‘Good’ Friday?
Bad Friday?
Sad Friday?
Day of gloom?

Confused and sad
disciples fled
forgetting he had said
these things must happen
– he had allowed them to occur!

Thus was the ransom paid!
and so, it is Good Friday
for it begat the Resurrection Sunday!

Alive Now!

Jesus died upon a cross
so he could be friends with us,
and forgive our naughtiness,
help us live like him of course.

Babe in a manger
Teacher and Healer
died as a Saviour
but Jesus lives
right now.

Jesus came alive again,
talked and walked, ate food, and then
went to heaven but hears us pray,
said he’ll come again one day.
