Palm Sunday is a day of contrasts, the people thinking Jesus is a reigning King, when He is coming to be a suffering servant. The crowds shouting hosannas on Sunday and crucify Him on Friday, was revered one day and rejected the next. Jerusalem is rejoicing and Jesus is weeping. Palm Sunday is the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem to set in motion the final pieces of His plan to rescue sinners from death, to confront sin. It was a plan that had lots of moving parts and involved lots of instruments, lots of players. As we come to the end of James, we remember from two weeks ago he urged all Christians of the necessity of prayer. He commended us to pray in all situations and circumstances, for all our needs. And as an encouragement or motivation he reminded us of the example of Elijah and the great power there is in prayer. Now James takes up another spiritual duty of Christians and gives us another great motivation to do this. As we ought to pray for one another, so ought we make every effort at reclaiming straying sheep. We ought to be like Jesus in what He came to do on Palm Sunday.
