In this passage, we read of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. He gives instructions to two disciples to go find a colt that has never been sat upon. Jesus states that the disciples are then to bring this colt back to Jesus for “the Lord has need of it.” This colt with cloaks on its back serves as the means of transport for Jesus’ grand arrival into Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives. As he arrives, the people begin to rejoice for they had already seen Jesus’ mighty works and knew him to be the King who comes in the name of the Lord.
We, as disciples of Christ, are to give praise and joy for we have also seen the Lord’s miracles performed in our lives and in others. When ways have been made where there were none to be found, the Lord was right there with us providing us the strength for our life’s journey. As we read this passage, may we be just as vocal as the Jerusalem multitude in sharing our love for the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. May we know, that draped in God’s infinite grace, we will one day make our triumphal entry into heaven.
Prayer: Father God, we thank you for allowing us to be used by you every day. We are so grateful and appreciative of the undeserved grace that you extend to us. May we have our faith and love for you strengthened by the sharing of this journey together. Thank you for enabling us to encourage our fellow believers on the road, and grant us the understanding to treat one another as you would have us to do. In your name we pray. Amen.
