There’s a saying that goes this way: “There’s no permanent friends only permanent interest.” The people who were praising Jesus to high heavens for the wondrous things that He has been doing were the very same people who will tell Pilate to crucify Him.
The people’s change of heart toward Hesus started when He was arrested by the roman soldiers He did no more miracles after His arrest that’s why the people’s confidence on Him started to wane.
The peoples faith were based on the miracles that they’ve seen and this is the shallowest belief after Jesus stopped performing miracles they also stopped believing Him. And the cursing began that eventually led Him to the cross.
As we are ushered into this Holy Week let us pause, reflect and discern on the sacrifice of Jesus for us, the generous love of the Father that He gave His only begotten Son for us.
Are we still mindful of this sacrifice of this generous love…?
