Donkey Theology

I remember last Palm Sunday like it was yesterday. We all stood in the sanctuary of the Truitt Memorial Baptist Church and waved our branches. We sang and did all the things Chrisitians do on Palm Sunday. I preached the story from Matthew's gospel. I got to 21:6 and the words jumped off the page and hit me between the eyes, The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. I talked about those nameless disciples and the powerful example they set. The message sank in deep. We even had some t-shirts printed.

The disciples did what Jesus told them to do. I have come to call this donkey theology. The measure of our discipleship is seen in our simple obedience to the directions of Jesus. Maybe we should just listen to his mother, Do whatever he tells you. John 2:5b TNIV
Have a great Palm Sunday!
