The Lord Needs You

Referring to a tied colt, Jesus said, ‘the Lord needs it’. As we enter the holiest week of the year, looking right into your eyes, Jesus tells you, “The Lord needs you.”

You may be tempted to act like the timid student of the class who would pretend that the question is directed to someone else. After all, why should he need me? You might say, ‘I am a regular person, taking care of my family and children, working from Monday to Friday, just to make sure that there is food on the table every day. Why He needs me?’ But yes, He needs you. You may be a poor, rich, sick, healthy, jobless, young, old, student, teacher, man, woman, homeless, or anything conceivable, yet He needs you! If Jesus had a use for the humble colt, He has better plans for you.

The owner had to let go of the colt that the plan of Jesus be executed. Unless you let yourself go for the plan of Jesus, you would remain tied down. During the past six weeks, with Jesus, we reflected on our lives, and probably identified many knots that tie us down. Now let Jesus untie us and go with Him, wherever He wants us to take. He wants us to take Him royally to places.

He wants you to take Him into your life.

He wants to take Him to your family and friends.

He wants you to take Him to your workplace.

He wants you to take Him to places where He is less appreciated and even mocked at.

He wants you to take Him to places only He knows.

If you are ready to carry Him like the humble colt, then this Palm Sunday is yours. Don’t hesitate, let Jesus untie your knots, and with Him go to wherever he takes you.

So be it.
