In John’s rendering of the Palm Sunday story – the Triumphal Entry – in John 12.12-19, his emphasis is different from that of the other gospel writers. He focuses on the crowds. So for this message, that’s what I decided to do, too: since Easter is next weekend, we need to be ready for whatever “crowds” the Lord will bring our way. I learned the main points of this message from a webinar put on by The Rocket Company a few weeks back. Have a listen, or a watch, and see if there is a way you can be ready for guests!
