Psalm 118:25-29

This was the prayer and cry of the people as Jesus rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday.  As they waved their branches and celebrated his arrival, there was an additional sense and meaning that was behind each of the actions of the crowd.  They wanted Jesus to save them, but in the ways and on the terms that they had already decided upon.  This week, we saw where we join the crowd in what we ask Jesus to save us from, but also consider what Jesus came to save us into. May we follow Jesus’ leading and direction as we look for his salvation.
