I heard a fellow tell the story of the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem from the colt’s perspective. When he was returned to his owner he excitedly told all the other animals how warmly he had been welcomed in Jerusalem. “People were laying down branches and even their coats for me to walk on. They were shouting and cheering. They were all so excited to see me and have me come to town.”
What a silly little colt to think that he was so special. But sometimes we humans can be just as silly. When God does things through us it is too easy to forget that we are just the bearer of the glorious One. He could use someone else just as easily so rather than pride we should feel great gratitude that the Majestic King would allow us to carry Him to the world.
What a privilege! What an honor! To be the bearers of Christ to a lost city. A little colt did it a few thousand years ago. Today the Lord invites us to carry Him to our neighbors, friends, family and the world. Don’t be silly and think it is all about you being so great. Rather, it is about Him and His greatness and kindness to us.
2 Corinthians 4:5-7
For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
