Wow! Pastor Scotty Smith’s Palm Sunday prayer at his blog Heavenward today just thrills my heart and stirs up a fresh burst of praise and adoration, making the truth of Palm Sunday come alive.
Here’s an excerpt:
On this Palm Sunday morning, I’m overwhelmed with your humility, your sovereignty, and your generosity. What other king could conquer warhorses and warriors by riding the foal of a donkey? What other king could break the battle bow and the backbone of all warfare by the brokenness of the cross? What other king could ever replace all politics of tyranny and power with a dominion and reign of peace, everywhere and forever? Only you, Lord Jesus, only you.
What other king would offer his life and death for the redemption and restoration of rebels, fools, and idolaters like us? What other king could possibly make prisoners of sin, death, and “waterless pits” into prisoners of hope? Only you, Lord Jesus, only you. There is no other such king.
Who is the King of Glory? It is you, Lord Jesus, and only you. Who is the King of Grace? It is you, Lord Jesus, and only you. Who is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords? It is you, Lord Jesus, and only you.
