QTVOTD: Laying whatever I am wearing, before Jesus…

“The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them (the cloaks). Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.” Matthew 21:6-8 ->me: [This is yesterday’s QT notes.  I will send today’s later in the afternoon.] This picture of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem hit me in a new way today.  The laying of cloaks on the Donkey and Colt as well as the road in front of Jesus is a note for my life and how I move forward in fellowship with Him.  The people were laying down whatever they were wearing.  Some had been traveling with Jesus for some time and their coats would have been dusty, sweaty, and dirty; but it is what they had.  What was impressed on me is how I can bring whatever I have to worship my King.  Whatever I have chosen to clothe myself today can be laid before Him as an act of signifying Him as the Lord of my life.  As a life group leader and man of God I set the example for others (just as the disciples did) by laying my cloak down first.
