Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Sunday Evening, November 3rd, 2019 - Ready For Use - Pastor Jared Shumate
What do a deer, a coyote, and a turkey have in common? Sounds like a silly question doesn't it? But Pastor Jared used these three animals in an illustration during tonight's sermon, Ready For Use.
As Jesus and His Disciples came near the city of Jerusalem He sent some men ahead to retrieve a donkey. That donkey was there for one reason, and one reason only. It was ready for Jesus at an appointed time. It was ready to serve.
Are you ready to serve Him? If you want to be used by God, you must be more like that donkey. We have a lot more in common with that donkey than we think.

29And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, 30Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither. 31And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him. 32And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them. 33And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt? 34And they said, The Lord hath need of him. 35And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. 36And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way. 37And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; 38Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. (KJV)
