…Blessed be the king that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. Luke 19:38
The crowd got it right, at least on the surface, that day of the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. He is the king, not of the Hebrews only, but of the entire world (no matter who doesn’t like it), of the universe, and of the heart of man. But back then at that moment, and tragically still this moment in modern times, the human heart is in rebellion against Him, and though some might give lip service, the human heart often goes with the fickle crowd that turned Blessed be the king into crucify him.
The human heart needs to be converted to the truth. Jesus is the truth. The human heart needs to yield its loyalty to God’s king. Jesus is the king. The human heart needs to be converted to a new life of joy, peace, and love. Jesus is the life.
As the Christian world remembers the waving palm fronds, and praises of Palm Sunday marking Jesus as the king, examine your own heart to see if praises to Jesus are welling up from within you.
Go sing His praises in church and declare Him king of your heart.
