HAPPY PALM SUNDAY!
You have heard a lot about the Spring Feasts over the last several weeks, and rightfully so! Yes, God commands us to keep the Feasts! Yes, Jesus Christ celebrated and fulfilled the Feasts! Yet, you might be asking, “What’s in it for me!?!” The short answer is, we should not obey God because of what God can do for us. Rather, we should obey God because we love and adore Him! In other words, we seek God’s face and not God’s hand! Nevertheless, God has made some tangible promises to His people who are called by His name!
Today, we will enjoy a 7UP! No, I’m not talking about the soft drink. Today, we will focus on the seven (7) unconditional promises or blessings of observing the Feasts. If you are not convinced to celebrate the Feasts after today’s sermon, then it will simply be a travesty and an intentional act of disobedience and rebellion! God is offering you a 7UP as your Passover payoff! Take it! Drink it! Be refreshed in Jesus’ Name!
