Names of Jesus Day 34: King

The Coming of Zion’s King

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
    Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
    righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
    on a colt, the foal of a donkey. – Zechariah 9:9, NIV

Tomorrow we celebrate Palm Sunday as Jesus enters Jerusalem. And though he rides on a lowly donkey, he is treated and worshipped as King. It’s a glorious picture, but a stark contrast of what is to come as we observe later days in Holy Week worship.

Thankfully we know that Easter is coming and Jesus is our King now and always.
