The Longed-for, Unexpected King

Jesus still rides on the back of a donkey when he rides into human hearts. He will never use a battering ram to break down our resistance. He will never come to us on a prancing war charger and intimidate us into acceptance of him. On the contrary, he comes not galloping to his throne over the dead bodies of his enemies, but humble in amazing weakness on the back of a donkey.
