Welcome Jesus… Today!
Welcome Jesus … Today!
“Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” Mark 11:9 (NIV)
Today, can we experience the excitement people felt as Jesus entered Jerusalem? Can we sense, after so many years of retelling, the importance and expectation of the Savior’s coming? Perhaps we should picture Jesus riding not just to the city gate, but towards the entrance
of our own hearts. Do we welcome Him? Do we shout praises? Do we throw down all our worldly possessions at His feet, considering them of no value next to His presence within us? Christ’s coming was not just to Jerusalem, and His final destination was not just the cross.
His journey came to an end at the doors of our hearts, where we were allowed to ask Him in. When we consider this, we can truly say with all our being, Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! (Mark 11:9 niv)
