“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23: 1)
Good shepherds keep the sheep with care and diligence. It is the shepherd’s responsibility to provide for the sheep and protect them from danger. Lost sheep are often sought with all diligence while the weak ones are gently led by good shepherds (Isaiah 40: 11; Luke 15: 4).
It is a very rare privilege to have the Lord of heaven as one’s own Shepherd. Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep”(John 10: 11).
Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd who laid His life down for the sheep. He is the compassionate One, the Saviour who is “touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin’ and who ‘is able to succor them that are tempted”(Hebrews 4: 15; 2:18).
Any youth who makes Christ his Shepherd shall not want any good things of life. Unfailing life insurance is signed when Jesus becomes your Lord. Come under His fold today and begin to enjoy His protection, promotion, power, peace, progress, and prosperity.
Challenge: Christ is the Good Shepherd
Prayer: Dear Lord, make me enjoy the blessings in your fold as I make you my Shepherd.
