  • This King ministered to the people.
Kings had many servants.
  • This King served many.
Kings made loud proclamations and the people were silent.
  • This King was stood silent when the people yelled, “Crucify Him.”
Kings wore crowns of gold and precious gems.
  • This King soon wore a crown of thorns.
Kings were protected at all costs.
  • This King soon gave His life paying the cost of all sin.

When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on that 1st Palm Sunday afternoon, He began His ultimate journey to the cross. The date was Nisan 10 on the Jewish calendar. It was the day in which the lambs were selected for the annual Passover sacrifice. On Nisan 14, Jesus Himself became that sacrifice. Jesus was the perfect Lamb of God, sacrificed for the sins of the world.
Jesus willingly surrendered His life.  God does not call us to surrender our life to death, but to be living sacrifices.
Romans 12:1 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.”

This King Jesus has promised to return, even if it is not within our lifetime, all will see Him.  He will reward those who have repented of their sin, accepted his offer of forgiveness and made Him King of their life.  If you have never surrendered to King Jesus, now is the time!
