As Jesus approached Jerusalem, He sent two of His disciples into a village to get a colt for His entrance intoJerusalem. He told them exactly where they would find the animal and what the owners would say. After the disciples had explained their mission, the owners seemed quite willing to release their colt for use by Jesus. Here’s the story:
31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it.’” 32 Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as he had told them. 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 They replied, “The Lord needs it.” – Luke 19:31-34
What is your colt? Is Jesus saying, “The Lord needs it” about anything in your life?
There are three things we can learn from this
1. Jesus chooses to use you
2. Jesus comes when He’s ready
3. We must remain willing to respond
As you reflect on Jesus this week, remember all he has done for you. When he tells you “The Lord needs it”, it will be an honor to be used by Him.
