“Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” With cries and shouts, for more than a thousand years, the church has celebrated the triumphal entrance of Jesus into his city, Jerusalem. Jesus isn’t just the King of the Jews, he is the King of the Universe.
The temptation for the first Christians was to throw it all away. Why not go back to the old way of doing things? Judaism had worked for thousands of years! Jesus is our Great High Priest. He completed the Jewish faith and won forgiveness for the world.
What is the length of God’s love? I suppose that’s the positive way to speak of God’s patience. Have you ever heard the question, “Are we there yet?”
Temptation comes in all shapes and sizes and yours might be different than mine. Satan knows where we are the weakest and won’t hesitate to float a temptation right in front of our noses.
