Genesis – Origins

The Beginning is our origin point, but not God’s. He existed before the universe, before we had the measurement of time, before anything.

These principles are for us today as well. Believers lives should be attractive in action and in our speech to draw people to desire a relationship with God.

The events of Palm Sunday, often referred to as Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem, are recorded in all four of the Gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. That repetition in Scripture shows us that this event was very important! It marked what we often think of as the beginning of Jesus’s journey to the cross. Jesus’s purpose was part of a much bigger plan established before the creation of the world. It went far above and beyond what the people there that first Palm Sunday knew.
