Saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. Luke 19:30 ESV
If we could ask this humble donkey about that day he would give us some good advice. First No man had ever sat on his back before Jesus. In other words he was reserving his forces to be used only for God. He wasn’t doing nothing he was preparing himself for God for that day. Waiting for the call of Jesus actively is like a car that is warming up in front of the house and ready for the master’s use.
Secondly our friend was ready to go. He didn’t pull back, run away or struggle against the strangers who came to take him. He happily and wisely submitted to the challenge and change that God had planned.
Lastly he was delighted with the role which Jesus gave him to play. His was not the place of worship leader, palm branch cutter or gate keeper. His place was to carry Jesus in such a gentle way that every humble heart would see Jesus and rejoice! Are you ready for whatever Jesus has for you today?
