I thought I'd make mention of the Lenten service I attended today. It was a great turnout, consider how crummy the weather is today, good fellowship and a great service. The speaker used the text of Zechariah 9:9-10.
Certainly it's one of those traditional Easter time passages but he gave an entirely different look. He considered the work of the donkey, actually a colt and suggested that we can be donkeys for christ. By that He meant we carry the presence of Jesus into the world.
When you think about it, that's a fascinating interpretation and fits with a lot of other passages, such as ACts 1:8. The call of the believer is to bring Christ to the world. I guess sometimes we can be good at it, other times we kind of stumble along the way.
Something to make a person think. And really, that's what you want out of a Lenten service, a chance to hear something fresh and the time to ponder the meaning later on in the day.
