Cross Walk – Who is This?

One of the most important questions in this life comes through in the narrative of Palm Sunday. When referring to Jesus, who is this? This is not only a question for those who do not yet know Jesus as Lord and Savior but is equally valid for Christians, to have in their minds and hearts, constantly putting Him first. As St Augustine famously is quoted as saying “Jesus Christ is not valued at all until He is valued above all.”

We see 4 major characteristics of Christ coming through as He walks (rides) toward the cross on Palm Sunday.

1. He is compassionately present.

On the way to Jerusalem determined and set on the course ahead He does not ignore the needs of those around Him. Jesus takes the time to respond to the cry of the blind, not only healing but giving them new life. (Matthew 20:29-34)

2. He is the prepared and prophesied Lord.

Preparations have been made for Jesus’ entry so that His intentions should be clear to all who see Him. This also points us to the fact that this is not a recent development, but has been the plan of God since the beginning.

3. He is worthy of praise.

The crowd shouts of His glory and gives acknowledgement of His position by their welcome. How do we welcome Jesus and tell of His worth every day, not just one day a week?

4. He is the peaceful king and prophet.

Jesus came to turn the world right side up, not by force but by love. This comes through in Jesus’ actions and by the words of the crowd as both answer the question, who is this? How do you answer this same question about Jesus today?
