“Sin is putting yourself in God’s place. Salvation is God putting himself in yours.”

Palm Sunday is the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem to begin the last week of his life. In that way, Jesus the King arrives in his capital city to do battle with sin. We cannot understand sin without seeing how it intersects with our King. When we do, we are humbled, repentant, inspired, and most of all beloved.

Application Questions

2. How does understanding that Christ “became sin” increase your love for him?  

3. What are some times you need to remember you are in Christ, and therefore fully righteous in the eyes of God? 

4. What are some times you need to remember that Christ is in you, and therefore fully empowered to live an obedient life?
