Expectations of Christ

Mark 11:10 Blessings on the coming Kingdom of our ancestor David!
    Praise God in highest heaven!”

Like the people who watched Jesus’ victory parade, we have expectations of Jesus.  We have ideas about how He could make the world safer and better.  We would like to see an end to suffering, injustice dealt with and prosperity for everyone.  We, like the people on the road to Jerusalem, have a lot to learn about Jesus.  We can’t get so caught up in the excitement of who we want Christ to be and what we want Christ to do that we miss the true meaning of being His disciple.  Following Christ involves hardship and sometimes suffering and death.
