Where the heart hits the road!


What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?

“Many people spread their cloaks on the road… ” (Mark 11:8)
This was an act of devotion, an offering of ‘self’ in service to the king.
What have you spread “on the road” for Jesus?
This is more than faith, more than saying ‘I believe!’
Many say ‘I believe in Jesus’, but they put little “on the road” for Jesus.
Jesus is the Saviour of the world, and also of me.
Do I really feel and appreciate this, am I thankful or joy-filled?
When is the last time I naturally proclaimed, ‘praise you Jesus!’
Not sang it in a song at church, but personally expressed it from the heart.
How has my love for Jesus shown itself in what I put “on the road” for Jesus?
To offer my car, bake a cake, or make time for someone, for Jesus!
Like that donkey, I carry Jesus into the world so that others may see Him!
Like that cloak, I make a path for Jesus to reach others in love!
As a Jesus follower, I am eager to put something “on the road” for Him.
This is our spiritual act of worship (Romans 12:1-2).
Lord, the worship You desire is not songs and words, but an offering of myself in devotion to You. Your Spirit is inviting me to put my faith, my life, on the road again!


  1. He reigns.
    And I need to serve Him in both words and deeds. I need to live out each day according to His word. That needs to be my Guide as I live this day for Him, walking in His presence, lead by His Spirit, praising Him Who leads and guides.

    Spirit of the living God,
    Fall afresh on me;
    Spirit of the living God,
    Fall afresh on me.
    Melt me, mould me, fill me, use me.
    Spirit of the living God,
    Fall afresh on me.

  2. I wonder how I would have reacted – the ‘Rabbi’ needs your car? It seems the owner may have not been there, the detail is not there in the story but it seems that bystanders were asking the disciples what are you doing taking that colt. The colt was available – like a car with the keys left in the ignition. Are my possessions available for service as the Lord needs it? I know he provides the opportunity to do exactly that. As a steward of all the God has entrusted to me – I have to see that all that I have is entrusted to enable me to serve! Help me Lord to overcome my own selfishness!
