Monday ‑ Lay down your cloak

Taking the twelve disciples aside, Jesus said, “Listen, we’re going up to Jerusalem,
where all the predictions of the prophets concerning the Son of Man will come true.
Then Jesus had his disciples bring him a colt, and they threw their cloaks over it for
him to ride. The news of his arrival rippled through the city, and crowds poured out
onto on the road to see him.
As he rode along, the crowds spread out their cloaks on the road ahead of him.
When he reached the place where the road started down the Mount of Olives, all of
his followers began to shout and sing as they walked along, praising God for all the
wonderful miracles they had seen.
“Blessings on the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and
glory in highest heaven!”
But some of the Pharisees among the crowd said, “Teacher, rebuke your followers
for saying things like that!”
He replied, “If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!” Luke
18:31, 19:29‑40 (NLT)

Bring on the revolution!

We’ve seen too many years of stagnation, resignation ‑ a country
occupied, a people oppressed, a faltering and compromised
leadership locked in endless cycles of pointless debate. It’s time for
action. Let’s turn some tables.
We’ve got a radical new hope, we’re coming through your gates, and
there’s nothing you can do about it. We’ve got a man worth following,
we’ve got the hearts and minds, the public vote, and they’re throwing
down their cloaks in the street.

Here comes Jesus and we’re right behind him.
