Jesus, the King

Tomorrow is a day many Christians call “Palm Sunday.” On this day they remember the time when Jesus rode into Jerusalem like a king.
Our Bible verses today tell us that Jesus borrowed a young donkey. He sat on it and rode it into Jerusalem. Jesus was the King of Israel and the King of the entire universe. He could have ridden a golden chariot with fancy horses. Instead, Jesus was humble and rode a donkey.
Later, Jesus returned to heaven. Now He sits at the right hand of God. Jesus has all the glory and honor He deserves. But He left us a wonderful example of humility. “In whatever you do, don’t let selfishness or pride be your guide. Be humble, and honor others more than yourselves” (Philippians 2:3).
This coming week, think about Jesus and His death. Remember what He did for you on the cross. Then be humble, praise Him and thank Him.
