Get Ready For The Promise

 

Even Jesus wasn’t exempt from waiting on the promise to be fulfilled in his life. He knew that he must go through a painful death, and die on a cross to purchase our salvation. There was no other way for this to happen. No one else qualified to take the place of Jesus Christ on the cross. The people followed him, and laid palm branches before him as he rode on a borrowed donkey through the streets of Jerusalem.

It was an honor to have this show of admiration. It was only one week later that everything changed. The very ones who gave their admiration, became a part of the mobs that screamed crucify him. They were implacable, yet he pressed on to fulfill the will of his father. How his heart must have ached seeing the very people that he loved and came to die for, turn on him; howver, nothing could have stopped him from fulfilling the will of the Father. He knew his purpose. Everyone must prepare for the future.

We must get ready for our promise, as well. No matter what comes against us, it is our duty to keep walking forward in Christ. Life isn’t easy for those who take a stand for right, and whoever said it had to be. Nothing that is worth anything is without a cost. The cost could be monetary value or a sacrifice of praise, but no matter what, there is a cost. Thankfully, our salvation is free. It has already been purchased by Jesus Christ at Calvary.

Hosanna in Greek, means to ““save now” or “save us, we pray,”  so the triumphal entry into Jerusalem recognized the savior of the world. It is time to celebrate Palm Sunday, and Jesus Christ. In this week’s Lattereign we shout Hosanna to the King.
