Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. I will take away the chariots from Ephraim and the warhorses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken. He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth. (Zechariah 9:9-10)
This morning we continued our series, The Kingdom and the Cross, by exploring the Palm Sunday narrative found in Matthew 21:1-11. We focused on the manner in which Jesus ushered in the kingdom of God, a kingdom marked by humility and a commitment to serve the needs of others. In my preparation this week, I read John Dickson’s book, Humiltas: A Lost Key to Life, Love and Leadership. In this book, Dickson defined humility as “the noble choice to forgo your status, deploy your resources and use your influence for the good of others.”
In what ways did Jesus embody this understanding of humility?
