If We Won’t Praise Our King!
Luke 19:28-40 NIV
Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King
“After Jesus had said this,
He went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.
As He approached Bethphage and Bethany at the hill called the Mount of Olives,
He sent two of His disciples, saying to them,
‘Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there,
which no one has ever ridden.
Untie it and bring it here.
If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it.’
Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as He had told them.
As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them,
“Why are you untying the colt?’
They replied, ‘The Lord needs it.’
They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it.
As He went along, people spread their cloaks on the road.
‘Blessed is the King who comes in the Name of the Lord!‘
‘Peace in Heaven and Glory in the Highest!’
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus,
‘Teacher, rebuke Your disciples!’
‘I tell you,’ He replied,
‘If they keep quiet,
the stones will cry out.'”
Don’t wait for the rocks to cry out!
