Hosanna to the Son of David!

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!

That’s what we were saying today in church as we remember Jesus coming into Jerusalem as King.

Not as any king though… the servant king. Jesus didn’t cling to the worldly stuff that kings cling to, rather he came in humility, preparing himself for his death upon the cross for us. This event was foretold in scripture hundreds of years before it happened. And today we remember the fulfilment of that scripture.

9 Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

This prophecy is taken from Zecheriah 9:9. What an amazing thing!

When Jesus next comes, however, he will come in all his majesty, and all will recognise him for who he truly is.

Today is the great start of Holy Week. If you don’t know about Christianity, or you feel it’s time to come back to God, let this be the week that you do it. You’ll never look back.

More posts to come shortly…
