Palm Sunday - Crown Him or Crucify Him


Have you ever been left disappointed? We all have. It is part of being human and something that we often don’t know what to do with. Do we withdraw from it? Do we engage with it? Do we ignore it? With the arrival of Jesus in Jerusalem we see a crowd welcoming a conquering king. His arrival was an illustration of God’s deep commitment to them but yet Jesus’ week that followed didn’t check all the boxes they had in mind. Soon their cries of Hosanna changed to Crucify Him. Disappointment became the cry of their hearts. You may have been disappointed. You may have been hurt. But the story of Jesus is that God will catch and can handle the full weight of your life. It just might not be in the exact way that you expect. We explore this conversation of disappointment on Palm Sunday and how Jesus doesn’t always arrive as we anticipate.
