I like watches. I probably have 7 of them in my dressing table. I always like to know what time it is. Jesus always knew what time it was--time to heal, time to teach, time to rebuke, time to go on a retreat, time to attend celebration dinners. His Father let him know when it was time to die. Jesus told his disciples that their traveling teaching ministry was almost over. “From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life” (Matthew 16:21). He knew that his royal entrance into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday would be his last.
A great miracle happened amidst the palms. Great crowds of people recognized that the man on the humble donkey was their Messiah, the fulfillment of all Old Testament Scripture. Their hosannas showed that they knew what time it was--that the Son of God was in their midst.
Do you know what time it is? It’s time for you to claim, or re-claim all over again, Jesus Christ as your Lord and King.
Your pastor and partner in ministry,
