《Jesus Crucifixion Week spiritual meditation》: “They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!]” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”” (John 12:13)
Meditation one: All the people took the branches of palm trees, crying out, “Hosanna!” and the people of Jerusalem poured out to greet the king who comes in the name of the Lord. But the king did not come in a chariot, nor did he ride a steed, and His mount was only a donkey. He is noble, but humble, and He is honorable, but ordinary. He is the king, but He has no Emperor’s prestige. He is the Lord, but does not have the arrogance of a ruler. He is the Lord, but He is like a servant to serve His disciples; He is the king, but He does not ascend to the throne of the palace.
Meditation two: Jesus’ “throne” is located on the mountain of Golgotha, and His king’s title hangs on top of the cross. This is the Lord of lords and king of kings, that very knee shall and every tongue shall praise. He is majestic and worthy, yet with humbleness and humiliation. He has forsaken himself and endured the desertion of His father, but He has drawn and conquered all men with His weakness!
Prayer: God Heavenly Father, thank You for your great love and salvation. Give me a longing heart toward the Lord’s Word. I would like to be enthusiastic in my daily life, Love the Lord and love people, and lead people to the Lord. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
