A greater type of king is what we need! This is the last of our Greatest Needs series during the season on Lent. A king, you might ask? Yes, you need a king.
“Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” With cries and shouts, for more than a thousand years, the church has celebrated the triumphal entrance of Jesus into his city, Jerusalem. Jesus isn’t just the King of the Jews, he is the King of the Universe.
Jesus entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday as a king. If the people had not cried out in praise, the stone would have shouted! This same Jesus would be executed just five days later with some of these same people crying, not in praise, but for his death. Jesus is our king of peace.
Jesus is our king. Palm Sunday is the one time in Jesus ministry when he let’s the people acknowledge his royalty. He is a king like no other, in control of everything. That doesn’t mean he ignores the small things in life. He has the very hairs on your head numbered. Hosanna to our King!
