Sitting on a donkey's colt."
If you have received Jesus, then Jesus lives in you. So

16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you

GALATIANS 2:20 NKJ
20 "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who

If I buy a vehicle for myself it will last only a few years.
Then it will rust, wear out, and break down.
But if I buy a vehicle for someone that will enable them to
preach the Gospel to more people, the blessing and memory of
that purchase will last for eternity.
