On Palm Sunday, Jesus entered Jerusalem to the shouts of “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” But five short days later many of the same crowd where shouting “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!” We are changable creatures, humans! We follow to easily along with the crowd. We give in to pressure or pain. We don’t take enough time to think through our own convictions and stand by them. We are too afraid of the negative opinions of others. And so we change to what is the most comfortable or expedient at the moment. Oh, I know this is not true of all of us in all situations, but this Palm Sunday crowd in Jerusalem reminds us how easy it is to give in to feeling or pressure. Jesus calls us to take up our cross and follow Him. We seek to stand firm in His truth.
