Jesus sends His disciples to find a donkey. Then, in full humility, Jesus sat on that donkey as He entered the city of Jerusalem. As He rode, the people shouted at the top of their lungs, “Hosanna!” and “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” The people cried out and laid their coats and palm branches on the ground as the donkey click-clacked along the path.
Close your eyes and picture the scene. Jerusalem’s roads are dusty and dirty. Huge crowds press along the main street. People are crying. There is a shout of celebration and excitement. The scene must have been absolutely overwhelming. Now think about Jesus as He sits on the donkey. He entering this city because He loves these people. Jesus not only loves these people, but He also loves you and me. Jesus willing to die upon the cross so that all of us can have eternal life. Open your eyes. How did Jesus model what it means to be a servant as He rode into Jerusalem? Allow God to enter your heart today.
