The Humility of the True King
“Jesus prepares to enter Jerusalem. He will enter majestically, hearing cries of ‘Hosanna in the highest!’ His sights are set on what he must do; his intentions are faithful to God, who sustains him. Soon the crowds will disperse, to be replaced by tormentors. Adulation will cease, and he will be faced with betrayal. Humiliation and obedience lead to death so that life may abound to God’s glory.”
“This is the day the Lord had made–let us rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29)! Jesus humbled himself on the cross for us (Philippians 2:5-11). God’s help for us is all-sufficient (Isaiah 50:4-9a). Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord (Mark 11:1-11).”
-Thomas Oden, from Ancient Christian Devotional
