The crowd made way for their promised Messiah, but did they even realize who He was? Word of Him had been circulating. He was preaching everywhere. His words had authority. He healed many. He did amazing miracles. He even brought life back to the dead. He had become quite a celebrity. This had to be the King of the Jews; the one who was promised by the ancient prophets; the one who would deliver them from their oppressors.
You would think a king would enter in a little more pomp and circumstance. He could have chosen a magnificent stallion, with an army of guards and at least worn a crown and robes of purple. Instead, He chose to come in a humble way, just as He did 33 years prior to this. His birth was unassuming. He was born in a place where animals were kept. He did this all to show that He was the one written about.
Dear, Lord, you took it on yourself to come to us in humility. The only ones to announce your birth were lowly shepherds, but holy angels sang for you and rich men from the East bowed down to worship you. You came to Jerusalem, riding on a donkey and soon would travel the Via dolorosa as people mocked and spat on you. Help me to remember your true purpose for your life – to give your life for me; to wash my sins away and to guarantee me eternal life.
As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension.
I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog.
I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ.
My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
