Things can quickly change

20140413-073241.jpgThe sun was coming through the windows in the church this morning, just as it does many mornings.  One of the windows caught my eye more than normal.  It had a crown and a cross.  It’s a reminder that things can quickly change.  Today churches all across the world will remember Jesus’ march into Jerusalem.  We in the church call it Palm Sunday.

The crowds were cheering Jesus as He entered Jerusalem.  Yet He knew the cheers would be short lived.  They would turn from cheers to jeers – jeers that would take Him to the cross.  And while that could depress us, the Good News is that just as the cheers were short lived, so was His death!

Jesus went from being hailed a King to being crucified like a criminal to rising from the dead in just about a week.  That’s a lot of twists in the storyline.  And it’s a reminder that no matter what this world brings, there’s a good ending for those who are in Christ.  And that’s one thing that will never change.

Here is a trustworthy saying:

If we died with him,

we will also live with him;

if we endure,

we will also reign with him.

If we disown him,

he will also disown us;

if we are faithless,

he remains faithful,

for he cannot disown himself.

2 Timothy 2:11-13
