Message for March 10, 2024 from Pastor Shirley

Matthew 21:2-3 “Jesus sent two disciples with these instructions: “Go over to the village across from you. You’ll find a donkey tied there, her colt with her.  Untie her and bring them to me. If anyone asks what you’re doing, say, ‘The Master needs them!’ 
Jesus needed a donkey and her colt to fulfill a prophecy concerning him several hundred years before he spoke to the disciples.  Jesus knew where the donkey was and her colt.  We have been created in His image and likeness and how much more He has need of us and He knows where we are.                                                                        
Some people may think because God is God, He can just do anything on earth.  But He needs by his choice the cooperation of man to execute His plans on the earth.  Our obedience moves the hand of God to do his will on the earth. 
God needed Mary to give birth to the Savior into the earth.  God needed Moses to bring Israel out of the house of bondage.  God needed Elijah to speak to the dry bones of Israel.  God needed Paul to go to the Gentiles.                                  
Jesus asks for the donkey and her colt.  Jesus needs you and the gifts you have.  The word “needs” goes back to the word necessity.  Something necessary, indispensable, important to the highest degree.  Is that awesome that the God of this vast universe chose to use mankind to speak into the earth the Word on His behalf.  Yes He needs Church more than ever in these days we are living in.  You are His valuable necessity for such a time as this!             
“For it is God who is at work within you, giving you the will and the power to achieve his purpose”.  Philippians 2:13
