Today we celebrate Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem. His approach was humble and gentle and the crowds opened their hearts and welcomed him as their King.
Sadly crowds can often be fickle things and as we know all to well it won’t be long before many in this crowd gather again. Not to praise him but to condemn him to death on a Roman cross.
Sadly too, we know that our hearts can also be fickle things. So let me ask some direct and pointed questions. How welcoming is your heart towards Jesus this Easter? What kind of welcome does Jesus receives when he reaches out to you? Can you receive him with all your heart and mind and soul and strength? Will you receive him as your Saviour and King? And finally, as we enter into this Holy Week are you willing to deny yourself, take up your cross and follow him?
Till next time. Andrew
