Rightful Reverence

Two were sent ahead of Him

for a colt never ridden.

The found just as He had said,

in plain sight, and not at all hidden.

“What are you doing?”

One man predictably did ask.

“The Lord, He needs it,”

was the response given for their task.

They took it to the Lord, Himself,

and made preparations for its load.

Greeted by palm leaves and praise,

as He then traveled down the road.

The crowds of people shouted

in reverence of His glory.

For they knew of the foretelling,

the realization of His story.

The Pharisees called to Jesus,

to rebuke His disciples’ shouts.

Jesus boldly told them,

“if they’re silent, the stones will cry out.”

For the truth could not be hidden,

before them stood the King.

The God of all creation,


(Response to Luke 19:28-40)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Your Son into the world in a way that was tangible and approachable. Yet in that, You were still fully God. Please help us to always keep proper respect and reverence for You as our Ruler and Redeemer. Thank You that though You are all-powerful, You remain tender and approachable; ever willing to take our hand and allow us climb onto Your lap and be held. Teach us to trust both Your tenderness and Your power, and may we grant You proper authority in our hearts and homes. Lead us in Your love, so that we may live lives that shine your light brightly before all whom we encounter. May many come to call You King. Amen.
