As we are in the midst of Holy Week, preparing to witness our Lord being sent to the Cross, we hearken back to Palm Sunday’s verse:

Zechariah 9:9 “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.”

And we realize that whether it is a colt that carries the Lord … or the Lord that carries a Cross – He is still our RIGHTEOUS and VICTORIOUS KING!  Righteous, as he bears the burden of our sin before the Judgment of the Father, and Victorious as the cross and the grave could not contain Him!  Soon we will shout with joy, the phrase, “Alleluia, He is Risen – He is Risen indeed!”

Thank you Father, that our Righteous and Victorious King Jesus is reigning with you forever!  Amen.
