Welcome the King 2015-03-29
When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, people got excited. Most of them had no real idea why. Some were looking for political freedom. Some for personal gain. Most people still look to Jesus only for what they want: comfort, convenience, worldly success, all the same things non-Christians look for. Jesus didn’t come to give us what we want. He came to give us what we need. He came with righteousness and salvation. He came to bring us back to God, not to prosperity. He came to free us from sin, not from low self-esteem. He came to rescue us from condemnation to an eternity in hell. He sacrificed himself so that we can live. Worldly things can distract us from our goal. Our goal is heaven. Only Jesus can bring us there.
