Surrender to the King of Kings
In 1917, General Edmund Allenby, commander of the British Forces entered Jerusalem on foot, after the Turks had raised the white flag. He did so out of respect for the Holy City and also as a sign of his own humility. This was in stark contrast to Kaiser Wilhelm II who in 1898 entered triumphantly on a white horse!
However, the most famous entrance into Jerusalem took place two thousand years ago. The King of Kings entered the city, lowly and seated on a donkey. Jesus came not to set up an earthly kingdom, but to establish his righteous rule in people’s hearts. The crowds waved palm branches and cried, “Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.” At long last, prophecy had been fulfilled. The Saviour had come! This Easter, will you surrender to Jesus and let him rule in your life as your Lord and Saviour?
