The great tragedy of this passage is that the very same people who were shouting Jesus’ praises, would days later be shouting “Crucify Him!” There is a lot more meaning hidden in these verses and a lot of context to explore, but that is one thing that sticks out to me.
My application is to freshly ask and believe in the glorious grace of God. He first loved us, even when we were His enemies, even when we were sinners and beyond hope. Without the sacrifice, grace and love of Jesus, I am without hope, and to recognise that is to recognise my utter need for Him.
Jesus, thank You for Your sacrifice, and thank You for Your love. Thank You that You stopped at nothing out of Your love for me. Please show me mercy and grace each day as I walk with You.
