Palm Sunday: A God of Humility

In Old Testament times, God appeared to the Israelites in pillars of clouds, in smoke, in fire. He revealed Himself only to select people (like Moses, who saw the Lord’s glory). And yet Jesus Christ, the very image of God, revealed Himself on earth as a man…one of us! The Lord of all creation, humbly wrapped in human form. Even at His entry into Jerusalem, He road in on a lowly donkey. One would expect God, the King above all kings, to ride in on a steed! No. He chose a donkey. This God of humility, though He Himself was without sin, prepared Himself to die in the place of sinners. And now He works in the world through the likes of people like you and me. Our God is a God of humility.
