One of the most exciting places to be is inside a stadium at an event with high stakes. Whether a playoff sports game, concert, or another event, you can feel the anticipation, the excitement in the room, the sense of wonder from people, people scoping out the best seats, the best views.
Similar feelings of excitement, anticipation, and awe wash over me as I read these verses. Except we are not talking about a sports event or an earthly event. Here the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Prince of Peace, is making his triumphal entry into Jerusalem. When we come to Christ, we follow a humble (yet powerful) King.
