TOPIC - Hope Is Coming
READ: Matthew 21:1-13 King James Version (KJV)
1 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,

2 Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.
3 And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.
4 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,
7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.
8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.
9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.
12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
THE MESSAGE:
When the two disciples brought the colt and the donkey, they placed their coats and garments upon the young colt to serve as a saddle for Jesus. The people were all excited, hoping that Jesus was coming to overthrow the power of Rome and liberate them. Jesus was not coming to destroy the Romans, but rather to deal with the issue of sin in our lives.
His agenda is to lead us into a deeper relationship with God, so that He might change our lives, and we will receive that which is truly important in life. Depending on the hope they had, they responded to Jesus differently. One group took off their coats and clothing and laid them down the pathway as a royal carpet for the animal to walk on to honour Jesus. Another cut palm branches and laid them down as means of honouring Jesus. A third group simply stood alongside the road and cheered briefly and went back to their businesses.
Today Jesus our hope for peace and eternal life is marching into hearts. The hope you have in Him will determine how much of your heart you allow Him take possession of. He desires to make every heart His home but will not force it upon you. With Jesus in your heart, you have hope!
Prayer: Lord Jesus, my hope is in You. Help me surrender wholly to You.
