12 The next day, the news that Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem swept through the city. A large crowd of Passover visitors 13 took palm branches and went down the road to meet him. They shouted, “Praise God! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Hail to the King of Israel!"
John 12:12-13

Jesus Triumphal Entry

When I read this passage it makes me think of a parade, a time of celebration. Think of a time when you celebrated a birthday or an accomplishment. It was probably a really big deal. But nothing compares to celebrating what Jesus did for us. Understanding what Jesus went through so that we could spend eternity in heaven and walk with Him here on earth is key to living life to the fullest. Even though we will never be able to fully wrap our mind around the sacrifice Jesus made for you and me, we can certainly try!
