John 12:13 Daily Devotional
Jesus is riding into Jerusalem on a colt, which is both a political and religious move. The crowds go crazy thinking this is how and when Jesus will cleanse the Temple and free them from Roman oppression, bringing them back to an independent state.
Jesus is the fulfillment of God’s promises to us. We must realize, however, that fulfillment won’t necessarily look like we want it to.
Thank you for your sacrifice, Jesus. Even though things make not be as they appear, you are still in control of the situation. Your sacrifice was unexpected. It wasn’t how anyone thought we’d be made free, but here we are – free indeed. It’s in your name I pray, amen.
