Jesus our King: pt1, The King No One Saw Coming

Have you ever gone somewhere, and you knew you had to make a grand entrance? An entrance can make or break the event. I remember a time when I was in high school, and my friends and I were going to a birthday party at someone’s house and everyone was going to be there; it was a yard party and everyone would see you drive up. So we decided to make a grand entrance with a fancy car, loud music and the whole shebang; but when we were about to leave, we found out that the guy’s dad had borrowed the car so we had to take his mom’s car: a minivan. Can you picture 5 guys driving up to the coolest party of the century with music blasting in the speakers of a minivan? Not the grandest entrance. Today, we celebrate a grand entrance. Jesus comes riding into Jerusalem to proclaim his kingship. I pray from this sermon that we all see that we must worship Jesus as king.
