God Is Our Shepherd

"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters." (Psalm 23:1-2)

One spring afternoon, a tourist named Peter was riding a bus through the countryside in Scotland. Up and down the steep green hills, woolly sheep and their little lambs grazed. Many of the lambs were playing. Peter smiled as he watched them leaping and kicking the air with their tiny hooves.

Another passenger on the bus pointed out a circle of large, weathered stones on the side of a hill. "Look, a sheepfold!" he said. A kind shepherd had built that sheepfold long ago. He wanted his lambs to have a safe place to sleep at night, a place where he could watch over them.

God's Word tells us that He is our Shepherd. Every person who places his trust in God's Son, Jesus Christ, is one of His sheep. Our good Shepherd cares for us always. He watches over us day and night. He promises to give us everything that we really need to be happy and content. What more could a sheep want?

God is our Shepherd Who cares for us and gives us everything that we need.

My Response:
» Am I discontent, or am I trusting God to take good care of me?

BIG Christian Word

Justification - (jus'ta-fa-ka'shun)

Justification is an act done in an instant by God in which he 1) thinks of our sins as forgiven and Christ's righteousness as belonging to us and 2) declares us to be righteous in his sight. Justification is just as if we never sinned. We are declared not guilty. It is the opposite of condemnation when a person is declared guilty. (Romans 5:1) "Therefore being justified, by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
