“You prepare a table before me”
What sort of table does the Lord, my shepherd, prepare?
“Your rod and your staff, they comfort me”
How does the Lord’s rod and staff comfort us?
The valley of the shadow of death is a reality to us all. Fears will come in the valley but a trusting in the Lord also as we follow in through it.
Paths for God’s glory
Todays service looked at how Jesus leads his people, where Jesus leads his people to, and why Jesus leads his people. We are reminded that Jesus is the way and he calls us to follow him. He will lead us on paths of righteousness remembering that love requires directions. And that Jesus leads for His name’s sake, for the glory of His name.
The sermon this Sunday is called “Led by Jesus” from Psalm 23v2b. The focus is in Isaiah 35 where we see how Lord Jesus leads his flock personally through this life. He leads them powerfully to the quiet waters, He leads them to a place of plenty even in the wilderness of trials and troubles. Jesus leads his flock to purity, along the highway called “Way of Holiness”, He leads them permanently so that an “everlasting joy will crown their heads”.
