Big Idea: If Jesus is the King, then I don't have to be afraid.
Verses: Luke 19:28-44
Summary: As Jesus makes his way into Jerusalem, his disciples turn a traditional pilgrimage song into a coronation hymn, declaring him to be the Savior-King who has come to rescue us. Luke uses rocks and a donkey in the story to remind us that if Jesus really is the King, then we don't have to be afraid of anything.
Next Steps: Consider the following questions as you listen and respond to God:
- What did God say to me in the text?
- How do I know whether or not what I heard is true?
- How do I feel about what I heard?
- How do I practically put my hope and trust in Jesus in response to his message?
- What's my next step as a follower of Jesus?
