Read Matthew 21.1-11
“When He had entered Jerusalem, all the city was stirred, saying, “Who is this?” And the crowds were saying, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee.” (Matthew 21:10-11)
We used to play a game where we would come up behind someone and cover their eyes and say “guess who”. It was a game that was meant to surprise but to also bring obvious joy to the recipient as they recognized the voice of the other person. But every once in awhile, the recipient would guess wrong and it was kind of a letdown. The children of Israel had guessed wrong on their Messiah. “Who is this?” they asked. “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee.” What a letdown that must have been for God. Jesus wasn’t entering Jerusalem as a prophet, He was entering as the King. Who is Jesus in our lives? A teacher or prophet? Or do we proclaim and treat Him as Who He really is: the King of kings?
How do you treat Jesus as your King?
