Scripture: Luke 19:28-40
28And when he had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29When he drew near to Beth'phage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, he sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, "Go into the village opposite, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat; untie it and bring it here. 31If any one asks you, `Why are you untying it?' you shall say this, `The Lord has need of it.'" 32So those who were sent went away and found it as he had told them. 33And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, "Why are you untying the colt?" 34And they said, "The Lord has need of it." 35And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their garments on the colt they set Jesus upon it. 36And as he rode along, they spread their garments on the road. 37As he was now drawing near, at the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38saying, "Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" 39And some of the Pharisees in the multitude said to him, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples." 40He answered, "I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out."
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus went to Jerusalem knowing full well what awaited him - betrayal, refusal, and crucifixion. The people of Jerusalem, however, were ready to call over him as their Messianic King! Little did they know what it would cost this king to usher in his kingdom? Jesus' entry into Jerusalem astride a pony was a direct fulfillment of the Messianic prophecy of Zechariah: Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion. Shout loudly, O daughter of Jerusalem. Lo, your king comes to you; triumphant and winning is he, and riding on an ass and upon a colt the foal of an ass. The colt was a sign of peace. Jesus enters Jerusalem in meekness and humility, as the Messianic King who offers win and peace to his people. That victory and peace would be secured in the cross and resurrection which would rapidly take place at the time of Passover. Loving Infant Jesus, be the King and Ruler of our heart, mind, life, and home. May our life reflect your meekness and humility that you may be honored as the King of glory!
