Palm Sunday – the day Jesus made the tremendous statement that He is the Chosen One.

The King of Kings – the sovereign ruler over all the Universe.The worshipers that day had no idea the extent of this, and no -maybe today we don’t either. T

he Sanhedrin didn’t believe it and the Romans – they plain just didn’t care, but yet – it was the day that He Himself accepted the Kingship of heaven – even knowing in His heart what the week ahead would bring.

Think about it – He entered Jerusalem riding a donkey in the name of a peaceful and sovereign God – people were worshiping Him with excited and grateful hearts – they welcomed Him out of their desire for a deliverer – someone who would lead them in a revolt against Rome.

However, that didn’t happen.When He failed their expectations and refused to go on this fiery revolt that they so longed for – they turned on Him

.It was a glorious day – yet within short order – complete human rejection moved in.

Now – His crucifixion was calling and His suffering awaited.Just thinking about what He was about to face makes my heart ache so deep it jars my soul.His very own Father would forsake Him, but yet – even knowing this fact – He still rode into Jerusalem peacefully on that donkey with each of us in mindHe rode through the shouts of praise – He accepted the anointing of Kingship, and yes – He withstood the most grueling of human torture.

The story of His triumphant entry is one of variation and as those variations contain pertinent direction for us as Believers today – it’s a simple yet mighty story – of the King who came as a lowly servant on a donkey.He wasn’t on a high prancing horse nor was He in royal clothing.No sweet friends – He was clothed as the poor and the humble – He came not to conquer by force as earthly kings do – but yes .. by love, grace, mercy – and His own sacrifice for us – His people.

The truth is – His kingdom is not of armies and the high falootin’ – It’s of lowliness and servanthood – mixed with – humbleness and gentleness. He doesn’t conquer nations – He conquers hearts and minds, and yes – His message is one of peace with God.It’s not temporary – it last through eternity.

So yes – it’s when we allow Him to dwell in our heart that we too are filled with His peace and love – and as His followers – we too will exhibit His same qualities – people loving people.

Today is a simple reminder of the welcoming of Jesus into our hearts, and yes – of our willingness to follow Him.

We are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period

“They took branches of palm trees and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” John 12:13
