Question Answer Series [4]: If anyone says anything to you.


Question: If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away Mat 21:3

Answer: As Jesus and his disciples approached Jerusalem, they came to Bethphage at the Mount of Olives. There Jesus sent two of the disciples on ahead with these instructions: “Go to the village there ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied up with her colt beside her. Untie them and bring them to me. And if anyone says anything, tell him, ‘The Master needs them’; and then he will let them go at once.”

Lord needed a donkey, and the donkey and colt were let go when the disciples said the Lord needed them. Do we realize our savior needs us? The donkey had a glorious walk to Jerusalem on olive branches and cloaks because Jesus was on the donkey. The donkey did not become a horse to walk in glory, the only difference was, that the untied donkey had Jesus on top. Once Jesus has come down, it is the old unnoticed donkey.

Jesus needed only the donkey, but the colt was also untied. It does not matter who you are, all that matters; can the world sees Jesus who you are carrying. Is the spotlight on Jesus? People sang for Jesus, not for the donkey, and never took the glory. Jesus is looking for an available donkey not the ability of the donkey. We need to be His donkey.

Jesus knew where the donkey was, what was the state, who was with the donkey, and who would stop the deliverance. The donkey had no clue of any of these things. Why are we worrying, when our Lord knows every minute details about us?
