HOSANNA!


On that first Palm Sunday, Jesus came into Jerusalem riding on a colt. Word had spread that He was entering the city and crowds lined the streets to welcome Him. People spread their cloaks on the road, waved palm branches for Him and cried out: “Hosanna”, which means ‘save us now’ - precisely what Jesus came to do. He came to save but He did not save in the way they expected.

 

The people longed for Jesus to be this new political Messiah that would free Israel from Rome, but Jesus Himself said that He did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many. Out of His love for us, He died on the cross, taking our sin and shame that we may once again have a relationship with Him. In the words of the old hymn: Hallelujah! What a Saviour!
