There are a couple of events to consider when we think about our commitment to the acceptance of the Christian life. We see in the Gospel of John, Chapter 6 that after Jesus spoke to thousands that had followed Him that many became complacent after hearing His words: John 6:66“From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.” In fact, only the twelve original disciples stayed with Him. And the other bit of information to consider is the fact that the people who were praising Jesus as He entered Jerusalem were the same people who were in the mob crying out to have Him crucified…..
These people were looking for a savior from their carnal problems and became disappointed when it was apparent that this was not going to happen with Jesus. We should consider our own motives in relation to these events when we examine our own commitment to Jesus….
