I don’t think I can articulate any better the irony of Palm Sunday to the cross then expressed here by Spoken Gospel.
“There is an ironic beauty in Palm Sunday. Jesus rides into Jerusalem surrounded by people crying, "Save us Lord" (Hosanna). Not long after, another crowd would cry out, "Crucify him." What's ironic and beautiful is the fact that Jesus would say, "Yes" to both crowds. In fact, he would save his people by crucifixion. He would be Hosanna by dying on a cross.
The people who surrounded Jesus with palm branches as he rode into town on a donkey were asking for salvation. They had no idea what it would cost for Jesus to answer that request. But Jesus did. He died for the sins of all those who believe that he is God and rose from the dead.
Maybe you have your own shout of Hosanna. Maybe you need salvation. Maybe you are in a place in your life where you are crying out, "Save me! Someone!" Jesus is riding into your life too. And he will answer, "Yes" to your cry in the exact same way. He died for your sins in order to reconcile you to God. Believe in him and he will ride victoriously into your life.”
