Hosanna

So, we've been singing this song called "Hosanna" written by Paul Baloche. I love the song, I love the word; "Hosanna" literally means, "please save" or "save now." The lyrics to the song simply say "Hosanna, you are the God that saves us, worthy of all our praises, Hosanna, come have your way among us, we welcome you here Lord Jesus."

It's also cool to remember what the crowds shouted at Jesus as he entered Jerusalem; "Hosanna to the Son of David, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord." In essence, the crowds are saying "Hosanna, please save us now, son of David." How true; it's exactly why He came. Next time you sing a song with the word "Hosanna" in it, think about what you're singing; "please save us now."

- Amen -
