Scripture Passage: John 12:12-16

The people waved their palm branches in honour of the One they thought would overthrow their Roman rulers. They were looking for an earthly king. Jesus was offering them a spiritual kingdom that would be eternal in Heaven. On Sunday they acclaimed Him; the following Friday they shouted "Crucify Him". Are we more interested in what Jesus will give us here on earth than in an eternal home in Heaven?

1. Why were the people honouring Jesus?
They thought He would free them from the Romans.
2. What kind of kingdom did Jesus offer them?
An eternal kingdom in Heaven.
3. Do we serve Jesus for what he will give us here on earth?

Memory verse: 1 John 2:17
And this world is fading away, along with everything it craves. But if you do the will of God, you will live forever. (NLT)
