      Luke 19:30 KJV

      "Go ye into the village over against you;in the which at your
      entering ye shall find a colt tied,whereon yet never man sat:loose
      him,and bring him hither."

      It is indeed the lowliest of all memorable processions which He
      plans,and yet,in its very humility,it appeals to ancient prophecy,and
      says unto Zion that her King cometh unto her.The monarchs of the East
      and the captains of the West might ride upon horses as for war,but
      the King of Zion would come unto her meek,and sitting upon an
      ass,upon a colt,the foal of an ass.Yet there is fitness and dignity
      in the use of "a colt whereon never man sat," and it reminds us of
      other facts,such as that He was the firstborn of a virgin mother,and
      rested in a tomb which corruption had never soiled.

      Thus He comes forth,the gentlest of the mighty,with no swords
      gleaming around to guard Him,or to smite the foreigner who tramples
      Israel,or the worse foes of her own household.Men who will follow
      such a King must lay aside their vain and earthly ambitions,and awake
      to the truth that spiritual powers are grander than any which
      violence ever grasped.
