Palm Sunday: Getting Jesus Wrong / Matthew 21:1-17
Mar 25, 2018
Pastor Mark Bergin
Everyone gets Jesus wrong. Yet he does not rebuke our broken worship nor mock our blindness nor belittle our immaturity. Instead, he accepts our praise in all its feeble lack of understanding. And he accepts us. For he sees our longings and knows they will be satisfied in him. We may not come to Jesus for the right reasons. But if we simply come to him, we can be assured that he will embrace us and teach us the ways that make for peace. Jesus did not enter Jerusalem to rebuke the Palm Sunday crowds for their folly. He entered Jerusalem to be with them, to be among them, and finally to die for them.
