On Palm Sunday, I was reminded once again why I am so happy with the fact that God does not act or think like us.
Many Jews believed that their messiah would come in with all the trappings of power. With a mighty army, formidable weapons and violent vengeance against their enemies. Instead Jesus the messiah arrived in Jerusalem on a colt an animal of royal breeding but lacking the prestige reserved for a king.
However, Jesus came to Jerusalem with the most powerful weapon against evil, discord and sin that the world has ever known. Jesus rode into Jerusalem with the love of God, and for that He died on the cross. Because God so loved the word that He gave us his only son so that we may have the opportunity at everlasting life. And that is why I am so happy that God does not act or think like us.
