A meditation for Palm Sunday

By Rebecca Barlow Jordan

They did not see Him coming. Not Him. They saw a hope re-kindled, an end to their injustice, an easier path to follow.

They waved their palm offerings, laid down their finest clothes, but they saw only a temporary king, not a Suffering Servant.

They sang alleluia from the depths of their hearts, and would have crowned Him there if they could. But they didn’t understand.

They didn’t see Jesus. Son of God. Messiah. Soon and Coming King. They misunderstood: His kingdom was not of this world.

Jesus knew. Astride on the back of a donkey, He knew why He had come.

The Son of God humbled Himself, set aside royalty, and exchanged Heaven’s robes for a towel and a basin of water.

He received their praise that day, but He saw their hearts, young and old alike.

And He wept for them.

And then He died for them.
