The dramatic shift from love to hate happens just a few days later.
We are to live like He died, fully submitting to His will. I stop to ponder and reflect if I am fully submitting my life to His will. Sadly, I know the answer is no, because I get in the way. I’m no different from one in the crowd on Palm Sunday, cheering Jesus on, waving palm branches to share the glory, then shortly later turning my back. It’s not intentional, but it happens.
I need to hand those pieces of me over to Him, submitting every part of me fully.
How do you fully submit your life to Him, living like He died?
