Our King is the True King and Deserves a Throne

Today we celebrate the King of Kings with shouts of joy. “Hosanna to the Son of David! 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' Hosanna in the highest!” (Matthew 21.9) These were the shouts of the ancient crowd when Jesus Christ entered Jerusalem and these SHOULD be the shouts of our hearts today and every day. But what exactly does it mean to shout out to the Lord?

When Jesus entered the Holy City in anticipation of His Passion, He entered as the King of Kings, but with the humility of a servant. He entered with the humility of a servant, but with the power of the Divine Master of the Universe. Today, He desires to enter our hearts with the same majesty and humility that He did some 2,000 years ago in Jerusalem.

Are we ready to accept Him NOW and the crowd did then? Each of us is called by God Himself to not only welcome Him into our hearts but to enthrone Him on our hearts as the King and Lord of our life. A king deserves a throne not built with human hands. He deserves the most precious throne we can offer, not of silver and gold, but our heart.
