True Worship (12 of 21)
Series: Jesus Our Savior - Gospel of Luke

Luke 19:28-38

There have been great defining moments in the history of the world when battles were begun or wars ended or kings crowned.

On June 6, 1944 General Eishower, after days of waiting for the weather to clear over the English Channel, said, "We'll Go!" and the D-Day invasion of Normandy was launched with 150,000 soldiers crossed the English Channel which was the beginning
of the end of World War II.

On February 24, 1991 after seven months of planning, preparation and waiting General Norman Schwardkopf sent the following message to the troops out in the desert of Saudi Arabia:
I have seen in your eyes a fire of determination to get this war
job done quickly. My confidence in you is total, our cause is just.
Now you must be the thunder and lighting of Desert Storm.

Another defining moment in history was the day that Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem, symbolically saying to the people headed
to celebrate the Passover, will you accept me as your king?

Up to this time Jesus had not presented himself as their king.
As a matter of fact after he fed the 5,000 the people wanted to make him their king so he withdrew to a mountain (John 6:15).

Now on the first day of Passover week he offers himself as king.
Swindoll wrote, "The triumphal entry of Jesus into the capital of Jerusalem marked a change in His relationship to the Holy City.
He no longer visited as a worshiper; he claimed it as King."

Jesus wanted to reign in their hearts before he would reign over their nation. He wanted them to accept him as their promised Messiah before he would reign over them as the political leader.

We have to accept Christ as our Savior before he is our king.
Jesus does not become our king until we accept him as our Savior.
