4. .Saint Augustine on Palm Sunday: Tell the daughter of Zion, “Behold, your King is coming to you, lowly and sitting on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.” Thus the Lord entered into Jerusalem as a King! But what kind of King is He?
Throughout the history of the world we have had many Kings that have conquered cities and nations. Today in many parts of the world we have Kings. But there is one unconquered territory that has alluded men of power throughout all history, and this is the human heart, and its sole conqueror is Christ the King! Today we celebrate Christ the King who enters into our personal Jerusalem, our hearts, where he saves us from sins, our misery, our darkness, and our death! For Christ was not the king of Israel so that he might exact a tax or equip an army with weaponry and visibly vanquish an enemy. He was the king in that he rules minds, in that he gives counsel for eternity, in that he leads into the kingdom of heaven, for those who believe, hope and love.
