Just a few questions on mission, provision and submission
Mark 11: 1-6 “As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, 2 saying to them, ‘Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here.3 If anyone asks you, “Why are you doing this?” say, “The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.”’ 4 They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it, 5 some people standing there asked, ‘What are you doing, untying that colt?’ 6 They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go.”
What mission have you been sent on which is solely to do with provision for a future event?
- Today is not about results but about provision for the results of tomorrow.
- The success of mission is to bring back what you were sent to get.
What is outside your door that is needed by the Lord more than you need it?
- If Jesus is Lord then He owns everything you have, you have no rights to your possessions.
- If you want God to use you then perhaps you should start by saying ‘God use all I have.’
What do others have that the Lord wants you to be boldly obedient to go and take?
- Jesus never wanted a worn out old donkey, so find the best because that’s what he wants.
- Radical obedience can sometimes at first glance break what would be the norm, (taking without asking).
