Palm Sunday – the day Jesus made the tremendous statement that He is the Chosen One – the King of Kings, and yes, The Sovereign Ruler over all the Universe.  

This was and is a big day – the worshipers that day had no idea the extent of this, and no, we may not know today either.   The Sanhedrin didn’t believe it – and the Romans – they plain  just didn’t care.  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 excitement and with grateful hearts. 

They welcomed Him out of their desire for a deliverer – someone who would lead them in a revolt against Rome.

Oh but no, that didn’t happen – and when He failed their expectations and refused to go on this fiery revolt that they so longed for, they turned against Him – basically it was an awesome day – yet – within short order, complete human rejection moved in – for now, His crucifixion was calling, and yes, His suffering awaited.  

As I sit here this morning, thinking about what He was about to face – it makes my heart hurt.  His very own Father would forsake Him, and yes, even knowing this – He still rode into Jerusalem peacefully on that donkey with each and every one 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.  

The story of His triumphant entry is one of variation, and 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, by grace, by mercy, and by His own sacrifice for us – His people.  

The truth is – His kingdom is not of armies and the high falootin’, but of lowliness and servanthood.  He doesn’t conquer nations – He conquers hearts and minds, for yes sweet friends – His message was then, and still is today – one of peace with God.     

It’s not temporary like what we’re faced with at this moment of time – 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 with His love – that as His followers we too will exhibit His same qualities – people loving people – right where we are – in spite of, and never because of.  

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

“So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!”   John 12:13
