NOT A LITTLE KING

On Palm Sunday, when [the crowds] rejoiced in Jesus' coming kingdom, they had no idea of the price of that kingdom. They were looking for a small king, a comfortable one, a convenient one. But while Jesus comforts, He is not comfortable, and while He is near for our call, He is not convenient. He is Lord of all, or nothing at all. A king of such magnitude is a king of ultimate demands. Jesus is not a little king, either in His power or in His commands.
