“Hope?” Luke 19:28-40

“I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.”

Luke 19:40


Christians throughout the world this Sunday celebrate Palm Sunday beginning the journey with Jesus to the cross, and beyond.  Hope is so important, especially these days; hope for better things to come, hope for good health, hope for a return to a new norm. The people who lined the streets to welcome Jesus to Jerusalem had hope, though it was somewhat misplaced. The Jesus they hoped for was not the Jesus they received; ultimately though the Jesus they received offered not just hope for today but hope eternal. The hope that God offers through Jesus cannot be silenced, no matter what earthly influences would discount the joy of believing.

Psalm 121 proclaims “I lift my eyes to the hills—from where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” That is the hope that calms the sea of doubt and soothes times of uncertainty and pain. And when our hope begins to fade, the very Holy Spirit of God will intercede for us, will pick us up and bind the wounds of our heart.  Give thanks and cheer for the One that gave all for you; celebrate the One who “neither slumbers nor sleeps.”  Know that you are loved; you are God’s beloved and God will never let you go, no matter the journey you find yourself on today. Turn to Jesus; “draw near to God and God will draw near to you.” (James 4:8) Thank you Jesus for your never-ending love; our hope fulfilled.
