Jesus King of Kings
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for December 1, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
“Say to Daughter of Zion, “See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
Matthew 21:5, 9
Lord our God, we thank you for letting hosannas rise from people’s hearts and for letting us cry out to you all the more fervently in dark times. Help us, O Almighty God, and help your king, Jesus Christ, to his final victory. For he shall be victor, bringing grace, peace, life, and victory for all that is good, on earth as in heaven. He shall be victor at all times in our lives, enabling us to keep faith in trouble, fear, and need, yes, even in death. Hosanna to the victor, Jesus Christ, the victor you have chosen! O Almighty God, proclaim him on earth. Let all the people know he is on his way, to the glory of your name. Amen.
Daily Commentary: Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord! But how sad is it when He is rejected by the people. How often do we rejected what jesus stands for even though we sing Jesus King of Kings and Lord of Lords?
Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem can be likened to our entry into society. We believe in what we stand for but are rejected for our beliefs. Jesus has given us many blessings which include grace, peace and love which we are summoned to extend to others. Whenever we tremble in fear in our lives we call on our savior to save us but our sins push Him away.
Christ the King has overcome sin and given us back our salvation. Whether He rides in on a donkey or the finest colt, we see that God can use us for the glory of His kingdom. How can we become useful for God also?
It is not our purpose to complain about life but to be appreciative of what we have for we may lose it. This was so true of the Jewish people who at first cheered him as their savior then just four days later had Him killed on the cross. They didn’t recognize the King of Kings and Lord of Lords for who He truly was.
We must remain steadfast in our faith and take action on the Word so that God can use us to the best of our ability. Our praise must be genuine, humble and forever for the One who made salvation possible.
