Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. Zechariah 9:9
Even though today’s verse would have been the easiest of all Old Testament prophesies to fulfill it was only done by one person claiming to be the Messiah. Only Jesus was humble enough to ride into Jerusalem on a donkey. The other claimants and there were many were more interested in forming armies and doing battle with Rome. These were not humble men. They sought glory and used the mantel of Messiah to gather followers to lead into battle. Jesus was different.
Jesus did not force people to follow Him. He was not showy. Here was God living amongst us and yet He did not demand to be treated as God. People came to Him because of His teachings and for healing. There were other healers around but Jesus offered more than healing of the body. Jesus offered to heal the soul. Jesus offered a way back to God.
As followers of Jesus we also need to take a humble approach to spreading the Gospel. When we came across a rude and arrogant we will lose the ability to connect with others and turn them off to Jesus. Jesus did not argue with those who did not believe He explained, He taught and he showed. He did all that in a quiet and humble manner. That is how we need to approach others.
Have a blessed day
