Daily Devotion on Psalm 24
Text: Psalm 24
“Look! He’s coming! The King!”
All the people run to the city gates to see what the watchmen are talking about. It had been a while since a great king had entered the city in mighty procession. Well, almost since the time when Psalm 24 had been written by the greatest king ever, David, 1,000 years before. Now, Herod was sort of a figure head. Pilate was a Roman governor and a big meanie. They had no real king. So who was this king?
There wasn’t much to see.
No chariot. No valiant steed. No trumpet blasts. No mighty army.
Just Jesus. Riding on a donkey, coats and palm branches strewn before him. Adults and children shouting, “Hosanna!”
Most had grown to love Jesus because of the kind acts of love and power he did for so many. But also for most, this was all they wanted. So these shouts turned into cries of, “Crucify him!” within a few days.
With eyes of faith we look back through 2,000 years of history and see who this King really is. Yes, he is mighty in battle. He defeated sin, death, and Satan. Yes, he is the King of glory! He won our salvation.
So lift up your heads, dear Christians. Lift them up this Sunday to join in the shouts of, “Hosanna!” which means “Save us!” Lift up your heads and march behind this King into Jerusalem and up to Calvary where he will take all your sin away.
Who is this King of glory? It is Jesus, our Savior!
Prayer: Dear Jesus, King of glory, in humble love you rode into Jerusalem so that you could take all my sins away. Let me join in everlasting songs of worship and praise to you for your mighty acts of power and love. In your name I pray, Amen.
