This Sunday is Palm Sunday. This is the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey, while the crowds praised him, saying "Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!"
They laid palm leaves on the ground preparing the way for his arrival, welcoming him with acclamation. (Matthew 21:7-11)
Yet, a week later, those same people who cheered for him, and praised him, turned against him, crying out for his death.
This made me think, how easy it is for us to change our mind or become doubtful or discouraged on a whim. How quickly we allow fear to enter our mind and deny our faith in Him.
But there is good news! Just as Jesus addressed the doubts and fears of Thomas by letting him touch his side, so Christ invites us to experience renewed faith and trust in him.
Come as you are.
