Have you ever been in a parade? It’s a fun thing to do. When I was a boy scout I was in several parades. Today I want to talk about one of the most famous parades in history - Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem.

A parade takes some preparation. Every year we love to watch the tournament of roses parade. Did you know that it takes 60 volunteers working 10 hours a day for 10 days just to decorate one float? (If you’re trying to do the math - that’s 6,000 man hours - 3 years’ work per float!)

There is preparation for the Christ journey as well. At the very beginning of our journey with Christ we have an initial decision of obedience. Will we follow Him or not? We don’t know exactly what that will involve. Sometimes Christ will ask us to take some kind of step of faith - to show our belief in him. It might be baptism. It might be sharing our new found faith with a friend or family member.
