PALM SUNDAY: What real Triumph looks like!
Jesus Triumphal entry into Jerusalem. And the people waved palm branches for their long awaited king of delivery. They sang with abundant joy; “Hosannah!”
I don’t know about you but for 33 years I would rather sing songs about the Triumph motorcycle or being triumphant in racing or the sports I played! Thank you God for letting me win! That’s the only time I thought about Jesus. “Oh Lord” please help me/us win so we can sing the truth about that song; “We are the champions!” (Got your attention)

The people on that day Jesus entered Jerusalem weren’t singing for the right reasons. They wanted and thought they needed an earthly king and that Jesus rode into town like Marshall Dillon or Like Wyatt Earp & Doc Holiday at Tombstone to defeat the Roman rulers and occupiers. But no, Jesus was really coming to deliver them from something else. Do you know what it was? SIN, THEIR SINS.

Do you see why I wouldn’t be caught in a church singing Hosannah or even the Newsboys song, Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns, back in the day? Can you figure out why most humans in 2019 don’t either? That only 5% of most communities go to church? Because Jesus didn’t come to be your magic Jeannie and deliver you from everything and everyone that bothers you. He came to deliver you from the ultimate thing that bothers Him about you! WHAT? Sin bothers God. It bothers Him because it separates you/me from Him. It bothers Him that you could be forever separated from Him if He didn’t do something to meet His righteous and just requirement for sin. Sin causes death. Spiritual death that leads to physical death, that leads to forever separation from God.

Jesus didn’t ride into town on a Triumph but more like a moped. And he got off that prophesied instrument and onto the cross by His own choice and will so that He could make a triumphant entry into your heart! He won’t charge into your heart with a powerful motorcycle but rather with the knock of a mini bike. Jesus asks; “Can I come in? I made a way for you to be delivered from your sin so we can have a relationship now and forever?” I said yes at 33. Have you?

I went from having all my focus on the things and people of this world, like Triumph motorcycles, racing, sports and partying, to Jesus as my main focus.

Not long after that, I was with an arena full of men singing the Newsboys song; “He reigns.” I joined in the heavenly choir.

It’s all God’s children singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah
He reigns, He reigns
It’s all God’s children singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah
He reigns, He reigns

How does a guy join in the singing and sing it with all his might? When he acknowledges Jesus as Savior and Lord that died for His sins and confesses, repents, believes and receives by faith. The new heart in Christ sings. You see your life and this world in a new light.

Palm Sunday. Wave your branches and sing songs to Jesus out of gratitude for His deliverance over your sins so that you could have a new & victorious life!
