Christians from walks of life today commemorated Palm Sunday.
Palm Sunday is an important event on the Christian calendar as it reminds Christ followers the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem towards the close of his ministry on earth.
Christians commemorate the event by holding match pasts and wilding palm branches signifying the kingship of Jesus.
The Salvation Army of Libala Temple was among the several denominations that took to the streets to commemorate the annual event.
Ministering to the congregants shortly after a successful match past, Salvation Army, Libala temple Captain Matilda Simamba urged church members to lead a humble life.
Captain Simamba told the congregation to emulate the humble life of Christ as demonstrated when he rode on a donkey despite being the son of God.
She explained in the sermon that Christ would have used a majestic animal such as a horse but opted to use a donkey as a way to show his humility.
Captain Simamba pointed out that a donkey was often seen as animal of low value in the ancient times yet Christ used it to enter Jerusalem.
In her message titled “donkey of destiny” Captain Simamba explained that Christ can use any person despite their social economic life to accomplish his work.
He encouraged believers not to underrate themselves as useless because Christ is ready to use any person to enlarge his kingdom.
Captain Simamba stressed that the onus was on every Christian to surrender their lives to God.
She narrated that God was only ready to use believers who fully surrendered their lives to him.
Captain Simamba centered her sermon on Luke chapter 18 reading from verses 1 to 30.
