April 9

The parade was about to begin and people were lining the streets just as they do with every parade. But what are these people doing? They are carrying palm fronds! As with every good parade, there is a Grand Marshall, but this time the Grand Marshall is the King, and as a sign to the Jews, Jesus rode on a donkey colt as prophesied in the Old Testament! Our living, breathing God receiving the honor that is due Him. Arriving in the city as King, but also as the only true choice for the Passover Lamb. He had performed His ultimate miracle by raising Lazarus from the dead as proof of His deity, yet most still did not believe. The people who were there with Him for the miracle and the people they told, ran out to greet Him as He entered the city, waving the palm fronds and worshiping Him. They didn't know that His death would soon follow even though He told them it would. Choose today and every day to give honor to our only worthy king, Jesus!

So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!" And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written, "Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your king is coming, sitting on a donkey's colt!" John 12:13-15
