Obedience through faith

(Photo credit- gta.wikia.com)

The 8th commandment says “Thou shall not steal”. Now imagine if you were one of the two disciplines that Jesus sent to the village to bring the tied colt.

Luke 19:30-31 KJV

“Saying, 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. And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.”

Bring it to the present day. Jesus says you should go to the BMW auto store and bring the new “tear rubber” 7 series car and IF anyone should ask you, tell them Jesus sent you. Will you go?

But the disciples obeyed because they took Jesus completely at His Word. Some things may sound absurd but if only we can take the Word of God as it is…

Food for thought:

Have you ever wondered how God could tell the Israelites to “borrow” when they were leaving Egypt? Think about it…

Life nugget:

John 2:5 “His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.”
