As Jesus was preparing
To enter the city of Gods people
He didn’t demand a fanfare
Or ornate windows, pews, and steeple
He chose a humble way to enter
As prophets had foretold
Even though such entry still
Invited His followers to be bold.
To be bold in their humility
To not give their Lord a steed
To not publicly declare that here
Is the King all people need.
To follow His example
And respond to the prophet’s voice
He offered them a moment
For their hearts to make a choice
Is Christ the Lord He says He is?
Or can I make Him the Lord I desire?
Is it enough to ignite a spark
That inflames a Holy Fire?
Or do I demand to see results
And see Caesars be deposed?
These were thoughts of His followers then
And we can be sure, He knows.
He knows that we have similar ones
We want a Lord who acts
We want to know if we follow Him
That God will have our back.
In the way Jesus enters, though
He invites us from the start
Not to follow to get what we want
But because New Life is in our Heart.
