The Sovereign Servant (Holy Week Devotionals, Palm Sunday)


Scripture: Matthew 21:7-11

They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:

“Hosanna to the Son of David!
‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’
Hosanna in the highest!”

10 And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, “Who is this?” 11 So the multitudes said, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee.”



  • Too often people think about Jesus as just some other person making some claim on our lives, but how does it change things when we realize that He is the sovereign King and Creator who has rightful claim over all thing … yet who humbly comes calling us to Himself?
