When has your agenda or desire impacted God’s authority and power in your life? Why do you think it requires self-sacrifice and humility to grow in the likeness of Jesus Christ?
Based on verse 11, why does the response of the people in Jerusalem change from “Hosanna” to “he’s a prophet from Nazareth of Galilee”?
