The King

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!  Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem!  Behold, your King is coming to you: He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey” (Zech. 9:9)

Lowly – it is the same Hebrew word behind the English translation of “poor” in Zechariah 7:10.

A King who came poor.  Needy.  Afflicted.

This is unexpected.  A scandalous event.  The kind of stuff that makes for a radical revolution.

He is not in a big, black SUV.  He is not even driving a Ford.  You could be looking in all the wrong spots.  He is on a donkey.  During this election season, don’t miss Him.

There is joy among His followers.  The shout of a King is among them.
