I'm Part Of A Colt Church

Matt Richards

Luke 19:29 And it came to pass, when He drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mountain called Olivet, that He sent two of His disciples, saying, “Go into the village opposite you, where as you enter you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever sat. Loose it and bring it here. And if anyone asks you, ‘Why are you loosing it?’ thus you shall say to him, ‘Because the Lord has need of it.’”

I realised after reading this today that staggering as it sounds, I am part of a colt church.

You know Jesus at this time needed a vehicle, something to carry Him through the streets in the triumphal procession.

He didn't look at the conventional or traditional, but borrowed a colt. (Stole it even?!)

Haha! You know Jesus is coming back and He wants a church to carry Him to the streets, to the people.

He wants His church loosed that it might fulfill its purpose, to carry Jesus. Loosed from being tied down, locked down.

My purpose, church's purpose, our purpose is to carry Jesus.

Let our performance, agendas, ministries decrease and let us join the colt of lifting up Jesus.

Holy Spirit is loosing some people so they can fulfill His mission, making Jesus known, carry Him to a generation.

Join the Colt: The Jesus people.


Father help us to be loosed to our purpose. Loose us from going round in circles and confinement to lift up Jesus, to make Jesus famous, to be Jesus people today in Jesus' name amen.
