Title: Palm Sunday To Easter Sunday
“The two disciples did as Jesus commanded. They brought the donkey and the colt to him and threw their garments over the colt, and he sat on it. Most of the crowd spread their garments on the road ahead of him, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Jesus was in the center of the procession, and the people all around him were shouting” (Matthew 21:6-9)
This was a truly unusual way for a triumphant king to enter a city. Conquering rulers normally rode on mighty stallions. But Jesus wasn’t riding a warhorse. This reveals what kind of King Jesus is. He came in meekness and lowliness. Jesus came, not for war, but to establish peace between God and us (Acts 10:36; Colossians 1:20-21).
What kind of king is Jesus to you today? How can you honor Him as your King?
Some days, I’m in awe of you. Other days, I’m overwhelmed by life’s challenges.
But despite my consistent inconsistency, you love me the same.
Thank you Jesus for your constancy. For dying on the cross for an undeserving sinner like me.
For your abounding grace and unending mercy.
Once again, I ask for your forgiveness for the times I’ve sinned.
Once again, I give my life to you. Use it Lord, for your sake.
