The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,
“Hosanna to the Son of David!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!” (Matthew 21:9, NIV)
Since a child it always bothered me how easily the crowd that claimed Jesus as a King would one day soon be calling for his death. However if we are honest, don’t we often do something similar? We worship him in our sanctuaries and yet we deny him in our daily lives.
However, I am inviting us to consider a consistency to our lives by looking to make Jesus Lord of all of our lives – not just our church lives – for being a Christian is a 24/7/365 thing not just a Sunday morning thing.
So may we live as Christ lived….may we love as we are loved.
