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.

The Sanhedrin didn’t believe it and the Romans – they plain just didn’t care. 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 .

But no, that didn’t happen, and yes – 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.

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

It’s sad and it’s true. Oh but friends, the story of His triumphant entry is one of variation, and yes, 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. 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’ – but yes, of lowliness and servanthood, He doesn’t conquer nations – He conquers hearts and minds. His message is one of peace with God, and no – it’s not temporary, for yes – it last through eternity.

Bottom line – 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 – that’s absolutely all the bottom line we need.

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

“They took the branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. .” John 12:13
