The Psalm Project #41

Bible Open to Psalms

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
From the house of the Lord we bless you (Psalm 118:26).

Dear Jesus,
when you rode into Jerusalem on a donkey,
the people recognized You as King of heaven and earth, Messiah.
Part of this verse was woven into their hosannas.
And five days later, they called for Your execution.
It hurts my heart that the Pharisees manipulated the crowds
and turned them against You.
It hurts me that the people who beheld Your glory
would so quickly deny You.

But without Your blood,
not one of us has any hope of being in Your presence.
Your sacrifice is our victory.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for loving us so much
that You endured the undeserved scorn of religious leaders and common people alike
to complete the task You embraced:
the salvation of Your people.
May I never spend one moment oblivious to what my joy cost You.
May I love like one redeemed and eternally grateful. Amen.
