Lord has need

Jesus says,

“…then sent Jesus two disciples, Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.”

Matthew 21:1-3

Jesus told the disciples to go and get a donkey for him. God incarnate did not send money with them, nor even tell them to go ask permission to borrow a couple of donkeys, He simply told them where to find them. Moreover, Christ said to answer any man who resisted them, “The Lord hath need of them”.

Furthermore God says,

“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. “

Psalm 24:1

And Paul says,

” For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. “

1 Corithians 16:29

Your Lord has need of you

When God has need of you, it is more important than whatever you are doing. Though that colt of a donkey didn’t know or understand what was happening, he simply went along with what the Lord wanted. When the Lord has need of you, simply say yes and trust the Judge of the Whole Earth to do right. Whatever we are currently doing does not compare with or outweigh our Lord’s will. When Jesus says, “come, follow me” simply leave off what you are doing and follow him right away.
