God wants us to be His ambassador to the world.
In this verse Jesus is making a request to two of His disciples. He gives them specific instructions on what He is asking them to do. He is involving them in His work. He is asking them to participate.
He is also asking for something from the owner of the donkey. He needs what the owner has but He promises to return it. There is always a reward and promise for what we give to the Lord.
I love this commentary, “He still moves amongst us, asking for our surrender of ourselves and of our possessions to Him, and pledging Himself that we shall lose nothing by what we give to Him, but shall be infinitely gainers by our surrender. He still needs us.”
The same is true for you and me! What is God asking of you today?
