Running with Jesus

Luke 19:30-31 Saying, 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. And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.

     Well here is a case that once again proves Jesus was God in the flesh.  He was all knowing.  They went and found the colt tied and sure enough they ask why and they told them, “The Lord needs it.” 

     They say by this time Jesus was well known in this area and I guess so! I mean healing lepers, opening blind eyes and doing so many miracles. He gave them all the signs.  The Jews looked for signs. They got them but they still did not accept Jesus. 

      I think today people are still looking for a sign, however, God has chosen the preaching of the gospel to share eternal life.  The Bible says a person cannot be saved without the preaching of the word and how can they hear without a preacher. Hmmm. Let’s have a think.

     “The Lord needs it!”  The Lord needs souls who are willing to give Him their life to be used to carry the gospel.  Jesus chose a donkey for the King of Kings to ride into Jerusalem.  I have always said if He can use a donkey He can surely use me.

     Most of the problems people have in serving are getting untied.  We are not supposed to be entangled with the world. 2 Tim. 2:4  No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.( “Soldiers don’t get tied up in the affairs of civilian life, for then they cannot please the officer who enlisted them.”)  I think this is one area the church is suffering from in this church age.  Pleasures and materialism has entangled us so much we barely have time to breathe.  We live our lives like a book with words with no margins.  Our calendars are so full we run to and fro and have no time to think.  Has this helped our society?  Has this helped our families? We ask,”Why is our land and world in this shape?”  Jesus has not changed and as usual man is one who does. Just like in the beginning God told man what not to do and we are still doubting the Word of God.  We don’t believe or teach we shouldn’t be entangled and if you do we get mad or don’t listen.  We want to gouge Eve for biting the fruit.  Are we any better?  We just like to pick and choose verses to obey.


 Father, have mercy on us, help us examine areas we have become tied that we need to untie so we can be useful in Your kingdom work.


Tomorrow: We will be running beside Jesus as He enters Jerusalem!
