Luke 19:40 “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

Today is Palm Sunday. This is the day we celebrate the Triumphal Entry. We have read some of the things Jesus did and taught as He was headed to Jerusalem. Now He is here. He already has everything ready. The disciples were sent ahead to get a young donkey never ridden before. A warrior goes into the city on a white horse. A King goes in to the city on a donkey (David did this also). The people are excited. They are praising Him. The religious leaders are jealous and don’t like what they hear. They tell Jesus He should make the people be quiet. Jesus shows His power and His Sovereignty by saying the stones could cry out if the people were quiet. This encourages me to cry out as to Who Jesus is. If He can speak through stones or an ass (Balaam) He can speak through people like you and me. We’re not to keep quiet. We’re to cry out. We’re to let all know Who Jesus is. Our question is will we open our mouths? God won’t speak for us but He will speak through us. Our goal is to go home to heaven and see how many people we can take with us.
