|Last week I was quite amused by our neighbor's donkeys.|
|It was hard to tell if they were fighting or playing.|
|After looking closely at the photographs,|
I decided that it was all in fun to them.
|They nuzzled each other,|
and appeared to be whispering secrets!
As I looked at the photos I had taken,
I thought about when Jesus rode a donkey...
Here it is from Luke Chapter 19 out of The Message:
(That last verse is the one that got me started painting God's names on rocks!)
|Did you notice that the donkey had never been ridden?|
Jesus the Master who could calm a troubled sea,
could tame an unbroken animal to ride instantly!
(If this photo looks familiar,
you may have looked at my
Rock4Today with the Names of God on Rocks.)
When Jesus rode that donkey into Jerusalem,
the people were looking for A DELIVERER,
to free them from Roman rule.
Zechariah tells of this in Zechariah 9:9-10 from The Message:
“Shout and cheer, Daughter Zion!
Because Jesus did not meet these expectations,
they quickly turned from praising Him,
and were ready to crucify Him.
|But the day they were looking for will come.|
Jesus will reign!
John tells about this in Revelation 5:12-13 NIV
