    Text: Luke 19:28-44. Jesus' Triumphal Entry represents the momentary acclaim on the part of the crowd for the miracle working Christ, but immediately afterward he weeps over Jerusalem, because he knows the adulation is short-lived, and that Jerusalem is missing the moment of God's visitation, not knowing what will really bring them peace. God uses a myriad of simple encounters to initiate his subversive kingdom agenda. They wanted royalty, he brought reality in the form of servanthood. They wanted a king on a throne; Jesus was that king, but the path to his throne would lead to the cross. Rather than seeking a hero, we need to be responding to the call of a savior who really does have the ability to meet not only our "felt" needs but the deepest needs of every heart. His love is experienced in the most commonplace situations: in moments like these, in places like this, among people like us. It is in these places and spaces his kingdom rule and reign begins. It is in these places where transformation takes place.
