And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the Mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, saying unto them,
“Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, ‘The Lord hath need of them;’ and straightway he will send them.”
All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
“Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.” Matthew 21:1-5
When it comes to serving the Lord are we as willing as the owners of those donkeys to just let them go at the word of His followers?
Do I, do you believe what God is saying when He brings us a message of the fulfilling of God’s word, and for His will in our lives?
The owners of the donkeys freely believed and freely gave of their resources to fulfill God’s will and word.
I will commit to doing the same. May the word and will of God always move me toward Him, not away from Him.
