“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Zion! Behold, your King is coming to you! Zechariah 9:9
Our response to Jesus the coming King should be to rejoice and shout in triumph. Perhaps you wonder, “How can I rejoice greatly when there are so many overwhelming problems in my personal life? Jesus’ coming will be nice, but that seems like a long way off. How can I rejoice now?” Christ came to take away our sins, to roll off our curse, to unbind our chains, to open our prison doors, to cancel our debt; in other words, to give us the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. When the Lord comes again, your pain will be a distant memory, every tear will be wiped away, joy unspeakable will be your portion because you will live with your Saviour for ever and ever!
