Read Luke 19:28-40
The Triumphal Entry is a watershed moment in the ministry of Jesus. It is His Rubicon. Once he arrives in Jerusalem, there is no looking back. Only forward to the cross.
Believers see that cross as the price to be paid for the redemption of the world. His motivation was love for His fallen creation. Jesus crossed this line and faced the cross because He was willing to pay the price of real love.
And make no mistake, real love is not only about receiving or exchanging for our personal benefit. There are seasons when real love is very costly.
