It is a wonder how quickly circumstances can change. On this day we remember Jesus and His triumphal entry as He approached the city of Jerusalem. People were laying down their coats and palm branches as He rode a donkey, they were cheering for Him with hope and joy. All the while the Pharisees and the chief priests were trying to figure out how to get rid of Him without causing a riot. As we know the narrative did change and then some of the same people who cheered Him, turned to jeering Him with ‘Crucify Him!’ – Luke 23:20…for me one of the most powerful statements Jesus ever made on earth was one of the last things He said…‘Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing’ – Luke 23:34 As we make our way into Holy Week, reflect of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and all He did for you. May God’s peace be with you.
“Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
