Y'all Need Jesus


Y'all Need Jesus - to Ride into Jerusalem 4.2.23 (English)

Pastor John Holtz
The OT reading is quoted in the gospel; the Epistle reading talks about Jesus being humiliated and exalted. Palm Sunday is a little of both. It’s the triumphant start to a week that will end in sorrow. Jesus rides into Jerusalem to shouting crowds, and dies at the demands of shouting crowds. “Hosanna!” (Save us!). Yes, there’s a reason the crowds shouted that when Jesus rode into Jerusalem. He was the only One who could. Y’all Need Jesus to ride into Jerusalem to do this, and He did.

Y'all Need Jesus

Y’all need Jesus! Oftentimes it’s a shout when someone is doing something wrong. Very wrong. Publicly wrong. Crazy wrong. Y’all need Jesus! We’re in the season of Lent now, and this theme absolutely works. It’s a time to see our sins in all their ugliness. It’s a time for a call to repentance, a call to recognize just how bad we are, how far we’ve fallen, how badly and how often we’ve failed. There is no possible way we are deserving anything good from God or saving ourselves. We need Jesus… so much, in every way. We needed Him to be everything we’re not, to do everything we couldn’t, to succeed where we’ve failed over and over and over again. He is the Savior we needed with a desperation that we can’t even begin to put into words. He’s all we need, all we’ve ever needed. And He was, is, and always will be everything we need.
