Triumphal Failure

"..the whole city was shaken.." 
Matthew 21:10 (HCSB) 

Father, tomorrow we celebrate Psalm Sunday and Jesus externing Jerusalem. The City reacted to Him as though a great  earthquake had taken place. " ,... the whole city was shaken, saying, “Who is this?” Matthew 21:10 (HCSB)   Then a few days later Jesus was rejected as their King and condemned to the shameful suffering and agonizing death of Roman crucifixion.. 

Father, we know his triumph did not come with branches being waved to welcome him but by being nailed to a cross through which he triumphed over sin, The Apostle Paul reminds us that: " ...He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross." Colossians 2:13-15 (NIV) 

Thank you Father that what appeared to be a Triumphal Failure became an infinite and eternal Triumphant victory bringing us forgiveness and eternal life. A life that we can live triumphantly everyday. As the Scriptures affirm: 

2 Corinthians 2:14 (ESV) "...thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession..."  

1 Corinthians 15:56-57 (ESV) 
"56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory (Triumph) through our Lord Jesus Christ." 

Romans 8:37 (ESV) 
" all these things we are more than conquerors (Triumphant) through him who loved us. 

Hallelujah for our Triumphal Savior!
