Palm branches sit on our table all week, humble offerings laid down for the King who rode on a donkey. Just five days later they are withering and pathetic. I reach to throw them away, but decide to leave them there. 

Those brittle palms remind me that I am unquestionably, scarily broken, too. My heart and my flesh are dead in sin. 

We are all in the same condition. But. 

Today our broken world meets it's Savior. 

The God Man who walked and breathed and lived. Perfectly. Today he hangs on the tree and endures the wrath of His own Father, in my place. In our place. In His death, Jesus breathes life into us. Because of Love. 

It's all too much to take in. This Sacrifice, this Love overwhelms me. I offer up the only things I can lay down. 

A repentant heart. A whisper of thanks. A song of praise. 

A message of Hope to the broken. 

By His wounds, we are healed.
