Sacred Sundays, His Day

Today is the most sacred Sunday.  It is His day, the day we celebrate His greatest miracle, the day Jesus Christ was resurrected, claiming victory over death.

Missionary Mondays: Share Peace

This week as you prepare for Easter you most likely will be contemplating Jesus Christ and how He is a part of your life.  Perhaps you may ponder the peace He brings to your life.  You may ask yourself how exactly the Lord blesses you with peace.  What do you do to find His peace in your daily life, amidst trials, or when you seek answers?  How does it come?

As you ponder these questions you might take some time to explore the principles that can lead to peace in your life from the Savior.  Mormon.org has eight short videos highlighting how eight specific gospel principles can bring the peace of Jesus Christ into our lives.   Below is the first of the eight videos.  Click here to watch the other videos and explore other ways to find the peace that Jesus Christ brings.

Share these videos with your family and friends and let the peace of Jesus Christ spread across the world.

 

 

 

 

 

Sacred Sundays, His Day

Today is Palm Sunday.

President Howard W. Hunter, a former prophet and president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, described the significance of this day in an address in 1993.

He said, “Today is the day the Christian world traditionally calls Palm Sunday. It is the anniversary of that momentous occasion nearly two thousand years ago when Jesus of Nazareth, the very Son of God himself, began the ultimate declaration of his divinity and entered the holy city of Jerusalem as the promised Messiah that he was.”

“Riding on a young donkey in fulfillment of Zechariah’s ancient prophecy (see Zech. 9:9), he approached the temple on a path that the jubilant crowd lined for him with palm leaves, flowering branches, and some of their own garments, thus carpeting the way properly for the passing of a king. He was their king; these were his subjects. “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they shouted. “Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.” (Matt. 21:9.)”

“Of course, that path so lovingly lined was soon to lead to an upper room and then to Gethsemane. After stops at the home of Annas, the court of Caiaphas, and the Roman headquarters of Pilate, it would, of course, lead on to Calvary. But it would not end there. The path would lead to the garden tomb and the triumphant hour of resurrection that we celebrate each year on Easter Sunday, one week from today.”

 

What will you do today to remember our Savior’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem and prepare yourself for Easter?  We would love to hear from you.  What makes this Sunday sacred to you? Please share a comment, share the video, or like and share this article.

Have a beautiful Palm Sunday.  Enjoy your Sacred Sunday, His day.
