Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday

The people of Jerusalem turned on Jesus because He disappointed them. They wanted a warrior Messiah that would liberate them from the Romans, instead they got a Messiah that confronted their own brokenness and sin and who preached peace. That is exactly what the people of Jerusalem needed though, and that is what we need. Jesus is more interested in changing us than in changing our circumstances. And if we stick with Jesus through his provocation and don’t resist Him but rather hear his voice, then we will have the peace we so desperately need.
