Jesus, Save Us!
Hosanna-a compound word that means literally, "Save, Now".
Some people thought Jesus would save them politically, from Roman rule, from oppression.
Some people just got caught up in the excitement of a parade.
Some people recognized him as the Son of God, as one coming in peace, here for the people and coming in love.
The triumphant entry...why now? Because he knew it was time to reveal himself to the audience at hand. It was time.
When the Pharisees demand to Jesus to rebuke his followers for declaring Him the Son of God and his answer is "if they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!" Identifying himself boldly as Messiah.
The triumphant entry is Jesus setting Gods plan into action, it's Jesus willingly putting himself in the position to be the sacrifice for our sins.
He planned it out so that his death would bring us life! Praise The Lord who would lay down his life for a sinner like me!
Who am I in the crowd? Am I just caught up in the excitement? Am I a scoffer? A critic?
Am I looking for freedom? For a savior?
Or have I recognized Him and I am here to worship him, to offer my undying allegiance to him and to his purpose? Praise The Lord!! He is worthy to be praised!!!
