Three Things We Learn From The Triumphal Entry

March 24, 2024   /   Blountville Christian Church

John 12:12-16

12 The next day rthe large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. 13 So they took branches of spalm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is uhe who comes in the name of the Lord, even vthe King of Israel!” 14 And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written, 

15  “Fear not, daughter of Zion; 

behold, your king is coming, 

sitting on a donkey’s colt!” 

16 His disciples did not understand these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about him and had been done to him.

I. Obedience doesn’t always require

Proverbs 3:1-12

1 My son, do not forget my teaching, 

but let your heart keep my commandments, 

for length of days and years of life 

and peace they will add to you. 

Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; 

bind them around your neck; 

write them on the tablet of your heart. 

So you will find favor and good success

in the sight of God and man. 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, 

and do not lean on your own understanding. 

In all your ways acknowledge him, 

and he will make straight your paths. 

Be not wise in your own eyes; 

fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. 

It will be ohealing to your flesh 

and refreshment to your bones. 

Honor the Lord with your wealth 

and with the firstfruits of all your produce; 

10  then your barns will be filled with plenty, 

and your vats will be bursting with wine. 

11  My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline 

or be weary of his reproof, 

12  for the Lord reproves him whom he loves, 

as a father the son in whom he delights. 


John 12:17-19

17 The crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to bear witness. 18 The reason why the crowd went to meet him was that they heard he had done this sign. 19 So the Pharisees said to one another, “You see that you are gaining nothing. Look, the world has gone after him.”

II. worship doesn’t necessarily indicate true

Romans 12:1-2

 1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.


John 12:19-23

 20 Now among those who went up to worship at the feast were some Greeks. 21 So these came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and asked him, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.” 22 Philip went and told Andrew; Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus. 23 And Jesus answered them, “The hour has come jfor the Son of Man to be glorified. 

III. We can come to because of what did on the cross

Ephesians 2:11-14

 11 Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands— 12 remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility
