Why was this such a big deal? Why was Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey an event that stirred Jerusalem into a frenzy the way that it did? You and I know of pivotal events that are life altering. Is a man riding into a city on a donkey worthy of such a response? The answer is a resounding “YES” as long as it is the right person at the right time. The culminating events that lead to Jesus entering Jerusalem and receiving this type of welcoming, did not begin on the journey once mounted on the donkey. These events began before the beginning of time. All through the Old Testament we see the way that the Messiah and King would enter to establish His rightful rule all are made visible at this point. Would you have been stirred up when Jesus came into the city? Would you be stirred up if Jesus came into your life right now? You now have a response to give to God. What will your response be?
I encourage you to watch this Palm Sunday message as we ask this question, “Why the stir?”
