Today is Palm Sunday, when Jesus rode on a donkey into Jerusalem and was welcomed with great rejoicing by the people. This same people, just 5 days later, called for his death.
The past is Jerusalem. The future is our hearts.
We have built cities in our hearts, where we feel safe. In the city is where Jesus was rejected. He died outside the city.
Jesus wants to destroy our cities, our security, and meet us outside where we die to our spiritual Jerusalems and put Jesus in his right place in our hearts.
