This verse was a prophecy concerning the Messiah who was to come. It was fulfilled in Jesus when He made His triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday riding on the colt of a donkey.
This verse was fulfilled in Christ Jesus but it is a continuation to what He fulfilled. It is continued through the Body of Christ. "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!' (Isaiah 52:7)
He fulfilled it, but we continue to make it known. When we share the good news of salvation with others, we do not share it in our own name or authority. We do it in "the name of the Lord". We are His messengers, announcing peace and proclaiming good tidings. We are "blessed" messengers bringing "blessings" to others. The Greek word here for blessed means: to invoke a blessings upon a person. Each time you share the message of salvation through Jesus Christ, each time they hear the Good News that Jesus saves, each time you testify to someone about Jesus, you are bringing a blessing into their lives. (Of course it is up to them whether they receive it or not.)
Do you want to be a "blessing" to others? The best way, the greatest way to do that is by sharing Jesus-- sharing the message of His love, His saving grace, His salvation, His mercy and His power.
Have a great day. We are messengers of the Lord who bring blessings to others as we share the good news that Jesus saves.
