How about me?


Luke 19:37 and 38 - "When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: 'Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!'"

Luke 23: 21 - "But they kept shouting, 'Crucify him! Crucify him!'"

What a difference a week makes. The same crowd on Sunday shouting praises on Friday is crying Kill Him. Boy, are they fickle. I can tell you I wouldn't have done that.

Right. We are no better than the crowds at that time. We do the same today. On Sunday we sing praises - and on Monday we live like the devil. Can others truly see Jesus in us? Do we really stand against the crowd? Do we have a voice that speaks on God's behalf.

This Sunday - when you are in church celebrating Palm Sunday --- think about the following week. Will you be strong and stand for Him? Will I be strong and stand for Him?

This is something to think about.
