3/28-Palm Sunday Luke 6:43-49
Thoughts: The great irony of Palm Sunday was that so many called him “Lord, Lord” and said, “Hosanna to the Son of David” proclaiming Him as Savior—yet a few days later there were no verbal supporters. Palm Sunday is a proclamation that Jesus is King and the Messiah. It is a reminder that He comes with healing in His wings. But these people were like seeds thrown on the rocks- that sprung up- but because they had no root- soon withered. Too many call Jesus Lord in hopes that He will do something for them, but when He doesn’t act quickly enough- or in the way they want- they fade away. When Christ helps someone, we should respond in faithfulness to Him- even when He is crucified all over again.
Prayer: Lord, may my foundation be solid, and my roots grow deep. Keep me faithful to you- not just proclaiming you Lord, but following you as Lord.
