Holy Week: Day 1

The King is Coming!

Mark 11:8-10

Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted,
“Hosanna!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
Hosanna, God Save Us! The King is Arriving!

Do you remember arrivals in your life that you wouldn’t have missed? For me, it’s the birth of both of my children. It was a day that I was anticipating. It was a day that I was excited about. It was a day that I wouldn’t have missed. It was a mile-marker in my life that I will forever hold onto. Now flashback 2,000 years ago to the arrival of Jesus Christ, the One who was their Savior, and they didn’t even know it at the time. The One that was there for them, a King they wanted to shower with praises. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.

There’s irony in this, and you’ll see this in the devotionals ahead. But now, flash forward 2,000 years from that time, and you get to hold tight to Jesus Christ. He is the author and perfecter of our faith. He is our salvation. He is the Way to get to the Father. Jesus has come for you.

In a world of uncertainty, and certainly in a season of uncertainty, our prayer for you is that you hold tightly to Jesus, proclaiming, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!”
