It would be hard to overstate the significance of the event traditionally entitled Palm Sunday. Here Jesus rides into Jerusalem conscientiously declaring Himself to be both King and Messiah. And the crowds enthusiastically rush out to proclaim Jesus their King. The problem is, Jesus does not turn out to be the King they were looking for. Herein lies a very important lesson for the church--one that needs to be taken ever so seriously. Many are calling on Jesus to stand with them in their political and social agendas when our true calling is to learn of Jesus’ agenda and stand to serve Him. The result is a distorted Christianity that looks very little like the Christianity of the New Testament.
