What you look for from Jesus determines how you receive Him. To the Pharisees, He was a threat, for He made clear that their supposed superiority didn’t earn them anything with God. To the crowd who at first received Him, He was a disappointment, for it soon became clear that He had not come to satisfy their earthly expectations. What are you looking for from Jesus? When you see that the worst thing in your life is your sin, that your greatest need is forgiveness, and that there is no one else but God who can take care of it, then you know why Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. He is THE KING WHO CAME TO CONQUER SIN.
