Come and Save Us!
The reception of our Lord Jesus by the Jews when he entered Jerusalem was the fulfillent of the prayers of all Israel. And yet, the answer to that prayer came to them in an unexpected way. And for that reason the Jews rejected the very salvation that they were crying out for. This is a lesson to us. Let us not despise the answers to prayer that our Father sends us. Instead let us pray for what we need and then gratefully receive what He, in his infinite love, wisdom, and power bestows upon us.
