Daily Bible Reading: Zechariah 7 – 9
Verse of the Day: Zechariah 9:9 – “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.”
From our reading today, we see a passage of Scripture that is applied to Jesus in the New Testament. It is on the day of what we term His Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. This takes place on the Sunday before His crucifixion. On this day (we call it Palm Sunday), the crowds rejoiced and shouted their acceptance of Him. Just days later these same folks shouted – “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!”
We need to be careful in our walk that we do not do as they did. On Sunday proclaim Him Lord, and later deny who He is.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, we are a fickle group of people. We worship You and then deny You. We shout your praises one minute and grumble about our circumstances the next. Help us to daily worship You – every day! Amen.
