Thoughts from Sunday
Our Journey towards Easter takes us to the streets of Jerusalem where Jesus made His triumphant entry. The crowd, with great excitement, shouts "Hosanna!" It appears that they've finally realized that Jesus was their long-awaited King.
Unfortunately, the crowd's expectation did not line up with the Lord's plan for His Kingdom. Jesus begins talking about His death as the means by which he would be glorified. This was unacceptable in their opinion and so they respond in this manner:
"We have heard out of the Law that the Christ is to remain forever; and how can You say, 'The Son of Man must be lifted up'? Who is this Son of Man?" (John 12:34)
"Who is this Son of Man"?
This is the question we all must answer. Today, we have the incredible privilege of being able to answer as the Psalmist did in Psalm 24. Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, is also the King of Glory awaiting entry through the ancient doors.
Our hope and desire is that as we share our faith, closed hearts will be open so "that the King of Glory might come in!"
