This was written around Palm Sunday but its message of provision is greatly needed on this day and even more in the days ahead
As we approach Palm Sunday and Easter and things at church begin to swirl into the Holy Days schedule, with all its rehearsals, and preparations, and special services, I thought I would spend some meditation time in this part of the gospels. These are some of the richest passage and there is much to glean.
Today this phrase struck me. ‘The Lord has need of them.’ Here is the context.
And when they had approached Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her; untie them, and bring them to Me. And if anyone says something to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.” (Matthew 21:1-3 NASB)
