Philippians 2:5-11 and Matthew 21:1-11
Every Knee Will Bow

Jesus rides into Jerusalem on a donkey. The city is buzzing - could this be the king they have been waiting for? The one who will throw out the invading armies?

But Jesus makes it clear that he is not that kind of ruler. His way is to open the life of God's Kingdom to us through his suffering and death. Jesus is the king who bows low, even to death on a cross.
