The King Has Arrived!

Matthew 21:1-13 It's becoming increasingly common for people to ask, "Is the Coronavirus God's judgment?" The answer is yes and no. Disease and virus are the results of what took place in the Garden of Eden. When Adam and Eve sinned all of creation became a broken and cursed place. Romans 8:22 explains... "For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now." The Garden of Eden experience brought another pandemic that entered the world: death. Not all disruptions are a form of judgment. Instead, they are meant to get our attention. Pandemics terrify us. They cause us to ask, "What about me? What happens if it gets serious? What happens if I die? What's next???" Jesus came to answer these questions. He came to reverse the curse and the events of Passion Week prove it. At the beginning of the week, he will arrive announcing his kingship. But by the end of the week, we see that this kingdom is very different. No white war horse for him. He'll ride a donkey. No golden crown for him. He'll wear a crown of thorns. It's all necessary for him to answer your, "What's next for me?" question. So take heart Christian, your king has arrived!
