Triumph and Tears

April 8, 2017

Jesus makes a spectacle. Something is up.  He comes like a king riding into Jerusalem.  But then, at maybe the height of the festivities surrounding this ride, he stops.  In this moment of reflection, a tear doesn’t just trickle from his eye; he nearly falls off his ride as he sways in agony with heartfelt cry. There is contrast because he cares, and he is sad for those who won’t allow him to be their Saving King.
