What if I’m a Bound Up and like a Donkey?

Matt 21:1-5
Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me.  3 And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.”
All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:
“Tell the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your King is coming to you,
Lowly, and sitting on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.'”

Of course when we read this passage we know that Jesus is about to make His entry into Jerusalem. But what is so strange is that he is riding on a young donkey or colt that is not trained and has been tied up or bound. What is so wonderful about this passage is that it sums up the type of people the Father would send Jesus to get and loosen from those things that they were bound too, so that they can be carriers His glory.  Even His own disciples actions were at times like a donkey – stubborn, argumentative, having selfish ambition, and cutting off peoples ears. These are the type of people that the Father chose to allow His glory to ride upon. He gave it to them in Acts 2. These were the type of people that had the opportunity to see and follow Jesus in person. So, you may say, “God can’t use me because I act like an ass, and I am all bound up. But Father looks down at you and says to the Spirit, “Go get that one! I want my glory and power to ride upon that one, and be one that represents my Son to the world.  It doesn’t matter if you are bound. It doesn’t matter if you have never been trained. It doesn’t matter if your nature is horrible, God is coming to untie you and give you the opportunity to carry His glory – The Son, Jesus Christ. If you are bound up and are like a donkey. You are qualified in God’s eyes. He loves you! His grace and love is sufficient! Carry the glory of the Son!
