"Hosanna to the Son of David!"
" Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Hosanna in the Highest!"
when Jesus entered Jerusalem the whole city was stirred and asked, "Who is this?"
The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."
Today is Palm Sunday, traditionally celebrated in our churches the Sunday before Easter (The Resurrection).
How excited Jesus must have been as he entered Jerusalem
when the people reacted with such excitement.
Only a few days later he would find the crowd would turn against him.
But on this day the people shouted, "Hosanna".
Which expresses both prayer and praise!
Isn't it funny how people seem to follow along when something exciting happens.
It does not matter whether it be positive or negative......
It is about what the "crowd" is doing.
This scripture reads, "the whole city was stirred and asked, "who is this?"
I can just picture the people seeing the crowd gathering.
Hearing the shouting......
They come running up and join in...
not even realizing who it is...
or why he is there....
The savior of the world has just arrived.
and the people missed it!
As we enter this Easter season let us not forget.....
Our savior, our Redeemer and our Friend!
He is everything His name claims him to be....
and because of him we are Joint heirs with the Kingdom of God!
Yes, we have reason to celebrate....
not just today......
