By Don Ruhl 

As Jesus entered Jerusalem, the people recognized him for who he was, the one who came in the name of the Lord. Therefore, in humility they used their cloaks to serve as a saddle and to line the way where the colt walked, upon which he was riding: 

Then they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their clothes on it, and He sat on it. And many spread their clothes on the road, and others cut down leafy branches from the trees and spread them on the road.

– Mark 11.7–8 

Great was the excitement in their hearts. The one they had been waiting for over the centuries, had finally arrived. 

They honored him in the best way that they knew at that moment. And he received it.
