The ideal king for God’s people is a righteous king who brings with Him salvation. Zechariah’s prophecy points forward to the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ in John 12:15. Riding on a colt, Jesus entered the land to bring salvation to those who believe in Him. On Palm Sunday, we celebrate this triumphant entry looking back to that day. Let this design remind you that your king has come to you to bring you salvation.
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” (Zechariah 9:9)
