As humans, we declared war against God. We broke the relationship between us and God and set ourselves up to be like God. When Jesus rode into Jerusalem, He did not ride on a warhorse declaring war on humanity. Rather, Jesus rides into Jerusalem on a symbol of peace – a donkey. Jesus turns our expectations upside down as He enacts politics on His terms. He makes peace between us and God, restoring the relationship that we are able to have with God.
