the 2 faced crowd

In John 12 we see what is commonly referred to as the Triumphal Entry, where Jesus rides into the City of David as the Messiah, the King of Israel. We then hear that chants of the people of Jerusalem saying “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!” John 12:13

Sadly this glorious day is extremely short-lived as only days later this same crowd would cry out, “Not this man, but Barabbas!” John 18:40.

What is your heart response to Jesus? Is it to acknowledge him as Lord and Savior or is it to turn your back on Him seek after wicked things of this world? Or maybe you are like those from Jerusalem who cried out to Him as Lord, but in their actions deny Him.

How you respond to Jesus is everything. “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” John 3:36. Don’t turn from Christ, turn to Him!
