Palm Sunday, Yr A
Whether our culture realises it or not, humility is a virtue in western culture generally and Australian culture in particular, because Jesus Christ went to the Cross and taught humility. Philippians 2:6-11 is almost certainly a very ancient Christian hymn which Paul has quoted and built a block of teaching around. Here are two focal points as on this Palm (or Passion) Sunday we contemplate some practical implications of Jesus’ decision to enter Jerusalem to die:

  1. Jesus’ humility changes the way we respond to one another in community;
  2. Jesus’ humility changes the way we respond to him as Lord.
