“Tell the daughter of Zion,
Look, your king is coming to you,
humble, and mounted on a donkey,
and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”

Jesus didn’t (and doesn’t) do ANYTHING like they wanted him to.

They wanted him to be proud.
He is humble.

The rich wanted to be his friend.
He goes to the needy.

The religious wanted to dine with him.
He eats and drinks with sinners.

They wanted him to defeat the Romans.
He defeated death.

They wanted him to free them from oppression.
He set us free from sin.

They wanted him to make them so they would have everything.
He made us able to need nothing.

They wanted him to rise up like a conquering lion.
He laid down like a lamb.

They wanted him to stay in the ground…

…he didn’t…

Thank you, God, that you did it YOUR way, not ours…
