March 25, 2017 — Palm Sunday
The Arabic word for peace is “salam.” It’s roots go way back to the time of the patriarchs. “Jeru” means king. Put the two together, and you begin to see that Christ came into the holy city of God, Jerusalem, as “Jeru-Salam,” the “King of Peace.” At His birth, angels sang of peace. Because of His death, we have peace with God. What a great Savior we have, who is our peace both now and forever!
