According to Luke : Hosannas
Pastor Tom Grieb continues our series "According to Luke."
The day of Christ’s Triumphant Entry into Jerusalem was a great day of celebration. Loud “hosannas” were voiced. “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord” was the consistent refrain. As Jesus entered the city on the back of a donkey, he was making a statement about who he was. He was a king of a different sort. He came in peace to usher in a brand new Kingdom.
I have often wondered whether some of the people who shouted their “hosannas” early in the week were among those who shouted, “Crucify him, crucify him!” later in the week. That’s the way we can be sometimes, particularly when we get caught up in a crowd. We are susceptible to the prevailing winds of culture and are apt to go this way or that when it comes to standing strong with Christ.
