YOU CAN PRAY WITH US...
1. Worship the LORD that He is our Shepherd. That He who is Holy loves His flock. Worship that the Father sent us His Son, the Good Shepherd, to lead with His voice, action, and authority, and worship that we have the Holy Spirit guiding and leading us.
2. What idols have you made your shepherd? What promised you life and so you followed it, but it never delivered what it promised? Confess your allegiance to a false god, confess what you have followed. Confess this sin and let this repentance cause you to worship the One who promises to lead and bring you life abundantly.
3. Give thanks to Jesus that He doesn’t promise to be our Shepherd on a conditional basis, but has proven His love and affection for His sheep. Give thanks that though we rebelled He has searched for us, found us, gathered us, and loved us. Give thanks that the Good Shepherd has laid down His life for you.
