In Matthew 21:8-9, we learn about Jesus entering Jerusalem as King: ‘A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”’

This passage brings back vivid memories of my childhood in Ghana when we would spend days in the run up to Easter preparing our palm fronds at school and Sunday school, in joyful anticipation of the Palm Sunday processions which would take place in the streets around our churches.

Just like on that first Palm Sunday, we would sing and shout like the children in the temple courts where Jesus responded to the indignant chief priests in Matthew 21:16 that “from the lips of children and infants, you Lord, have called forth your praise”.

This Easter, I pray that the Lord Jesus rides triumphantly into our lives and that we, like innocent and curious infants, will praise Him and rejoice in His resurrection after His death on the cross for our sins.
