Tomorrow is Palm Sunday or Passion Sunday as we celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem and the beginning of Holy Week. On this day, Christians also remember Christ's sacrificial death on the cross, praise God for the gift of salvation and look expectantly to the Lord's second coming.
This is a wonderful time to remember the great commandment Jesus gave to his followers prior to his passion.
"Hear, of Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone!
Therefore, you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.
This is the second,
You shall love your neighbor as yourself" (VV. 29-31).
The scribe then repeated Jesus's commandment and added is worth more than any burnt offering or sacrifices. Jesus replied, "You are not far from the Kingdom of God." Our call to action is to Love God and Love Others on our path to the Salvation-the Kingdom of God.
The Lord our God is Lord alone!
