“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.
Jesus entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday as a king. If the people had not cried out in praise, the stone would have shouted! This same Jesus would be executed just five days later with some of these same people crying, not in praise, but for his death. Jesus is our king of peace.
Hosanna! Lord save us! This is our cry as we welcome the King of Kings. We enter Holy Week mindful of the great sacrifice paid by our great high priest. To be sure, Jesus is a king, but is he the king we’ve always wanted? Watch and find out!
Jesus is our king. Palm Sunday is the one time in Jesus ministry when he let’s the people acknowledge his royalty. He is a king like no other, in control of everything. That doesn’t mean he ignores the small things in life. He has the very hairs on your head numbered. Hosanna to our King!
