The Perils of Welcoming the King – Sherri Guenther Trautwein

 

Scripture: Psalm 118:1-29; Mark 11:1-11

 

In Mark 11, the crowds welcome Jesus into Jerusalem with shouts and fanfare. The King has come!! The long awaited kingdom of David is finally being ushered in!! But, as we know, this triumphal entry doesn’t produce the result they were hoping for. Jesus, isn’t the kind of king they were hoping for. What does it mean, to welcome Jesus as King and the kingdom he brings.
