THE SHEPHERD WHO RESTORES OUR SOUL

Psalm 23:3 How many species of animals do you suppose inhabit planet earth? Well, I looked it up. If we limit our search to only mammals, so birds, reptiles, fish, and amphibians are excluded, there are 5,416 species of mammals. Human beings are one of these, of course. That means when likening human beings, and specifically His people to another animal, God had 5,415 choices. God could have said we are like the mighty lion, or the swift gazelle, or the sly fox. Instead, God says we are like sheep. The Bible often pictures the people of God as sheep. Ps. 100:3 declares: "Know that the Lord is God, It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture." Whe

THE SHEPHERD WHO BRINGS CONTENTMENT

Psalm 23:2 Have you ever gone white water rafting? I haven’t, but I have a number of friends who have. I’m sure you all have seen pictures or videos of people white water rafting. It is non-stop thrills. The water is rushing extremely fast. There are lots of large rock and boulders in the river that the rafters must avoid. There are sudden dips and drop offs, whirlpools to avoid. Water is spraying everywhere. Sometimes a person falls out of the raft, or the whole raft is overturned. It’s a heart-stopping adventure. But while it offers lots of thrills and excitement, as well as some fear, I don’t think anyone would want to spend their entire life doing that. The ride lasts for maybe

A GLIMSPE OF GOD

PsALM 23:1 Imagine you were given this assignment: you had to describe God in just five words. You had to say as much as you could about God, about His character, His purposes, the relationship He desires with us and the kind of relationship we can have with Him in just five words. What five words would you choose? It seems almost impossible to accomplish that task - to say all we need to know about God in just five words, and the truth is, it probably is impossible. But if you were given that task, you could approach it in two different ways. You could narrow it down to five individual words, such as loving, faithful, powerful, wise, and holy. Of course, then you’ve left out characteri

TRUSTING GOD IN TRAGEDY

Psalm 102:18-28 Introduction In July I shared with you a message entitled “The Prayer of One in Pain,” from Psalm 102:1-17. Change is evident in life and change can result in pain. Basuki Tjahaya Purnama or Ahok, experienced the unexpected turn of events in his life as the governor of Jakarta. He lost in the re-election and ended up in jail for alleged blasphemy. He actually appealed against his sentencing, but subsequently withdrew his appeal. He came to terms with the court’s decision and also God’s will and purpose for his life. We have to imagine how he would have prayed as a politician and as a Christian, as he fell from his pedestal of honour and leadership. The Psalmist showed us the

A NEW COMMAND – LOVING AS JESUS LOVED

John 13:34-35 Let me begin today with a question. What is the one distinguishing mark of a Christian? What is it above everything else that would communicate to those who are not followers of Jesus that we are His disciples? Obviously, the fact that we believe Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior sets us apart from those who do not believe that. But in terms of how we live, what should be so much a part of who we are that even those who do not profess to have faith in Christ could not help but notice? Well, Jesus answered that question for us. And the answer has nothing to do with how religious we are, or how moral we are, or how often we attend church. Not that those things aren’t importan
