“In the past, God spoke to our ancestors many times and in many ways through the prophets, but in these last days, He has spoken to us through His Son” (Hebrews 1:1-2). Jesus is God’s vehicle to deliver grace, love, forgiveness, and eternity.
Have you ever considered the vehicles Jesus used? For example, what occurred on Palm Sunday? Jesus entered Jerusalem. You know the story well, or do you? Jesus rode into Jerusalem. The people lined the streets. They honored Him with palm branches and laid their garments on the ground. What vehicle did He use?
If you said, “a donkey,” you are correct. Did you know that 500 years earlier, the prophet Zechariah predicted that event? In Zechariah 9:9, it says, “Your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle, and riding on a donkey.”
Did you know that every donkey, anywhere in the world, is born with a cross on its back? The long part of the cross runs along its spine, and the crossbar extends from one front shoulder to the other. How amazing! On Sunday, Jesus rides into Jerusalem on a cross! The following Friday, He carries a cross out of Jerusalem!
So, what was the vehicle Jesus used for Palm Sunday? If you said, “the donkey,” you are only half right. How did He get the donkey? He asked two of His disciples to go into Jerusalem and bring Him a donkey. The disciples were also a vehicle Jesus used. He is still using people today. You and I are vehicles for Jesus to reach the world.
