Luke:19.30  “Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. Luke:19.31  If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ tell him, ‘The Lord needs it.'” Luke:19.32  Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as he had told them. Luke:19.33  As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, “Why are you untying the colt?” Luke:19.34  They replied, “The Lord needs it.” Luke:19.35  They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it. Luke:19.36  As he went along, people spread their cloaks on the road. Luke:19.37  When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:

The triumphant entry of Jesus to Jerusalem for us believers marked the begining of eternal life which was also the begining of suffering, agony, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

To the tied donkey, it only meant freedom from bondage. The donkey isn’t meant to be tied. No! So you can imagine how satisfied it felt been used for the first time by the Lord.

Luke 19.34, Jesus’ disciples replied ” The Lord needs it”. Like the donkey, the Lord needs you. He needs you to carry his light and word to establish his purpose on earth. He needs you as a vessel to save the world from darkness and death. Like the donkey he needs us so he can pour himself into us for his purpose. He wants to do it with us.

But first,you need to be untied from any bondage by the renewal of your mind. You need to be untied from anything that keeps you in bondage, from the sin you keep going back to. You need to separate yourself from things that make you too busy to be used by the Lord.

You are useful for his purpose and today, on palm Sunday, be reminded that the Lord needs you. So whatever that is keeping you in bondage must be broken because the Lord needs you and you can’t be tied. Amen!

You need to be untied to be useful.
