When God Moves View video
Matthew 21:1 - 21:11
1. As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples,
2. saying to them, "Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me.
3. If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away."
4. This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
5. "Say to the Daughter of Zion, 'See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.' "
6. The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them.
7. They brought the donkey and the colt, placed their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them.
8. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.
9. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Hosanna in the highest heaven!"
10. When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, "Who is this?"
11. The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."
Reflection
Immediate Obedience (21:1–5)
Jesus knows He must enter Jerusalem in the way that Zechariah prophesied. He therefore employs His divine knowledge and authority to make sure the disciples can procure the donkey and colt that He needs. The two disciples entrusted with this important task immediately obey Jesus’ orders and the owner of the animals hands them over without hesitation. When God decides to move, there is no stopping Him. If we want to be involved, we must act with immediate obedience. Our prayers for God’s kingdom to come and His will to be done must be followed by our resolve to actively take part in this work and adapt to any and all circumstances that come along the way.

Jesus Is Coming (21:6–11)
Recognizing what looks like the Messiah coming into Jerusalem, the people are stirred up and rejoice at Jesus’ triumphal entry. But it seems that they are still acting out of their expectations of an earthly king rising up against the Romans and restoring the land to glory. Had they known that Jesus’ mission was to suffer and die, would they still have celebrated? The crowd who cried “Hosanna!” were likely the same people who would later abandon Him on His road to Calvary. Similarly, our spiritual vitality tends to wane as the wait for Christ’s return stretches longer than anyone expected. But this promise remains true: Jesus is coming! His church has been waiting all this while; let us continue to shout praises to His name as we eagerly anticipate His return.
Application
- How is God calling you to immediate obedience for the sake of His kingdom? What steps can you take today in response to this call?

- What are you most looking forward to about the day when Jesus returns? What do you need to do to break out of your spiritual apathy as you wait for Him?
A Letter to God
Lord Jesus, forgive me for my spiritual apathy and the times I have taken my salvation for granted. Renew my passion for Your gospel and kingdom and empower me to act as Your salt and light in this world. In Your name, amen.
