The Shepherd and His Flock

"I am the good Shepherd; I know my sheep
and my sheep know Me- just as the Father
knows Me and I know the Father-
And I lay down My life for the sheep.

I have other sheep that are not of this
sheep pen. I must bring them also.
They too will listen to My voice,
and there shall be one flock and one

The reason why my Father loves Me
is that I lay down my life- only to take
it up again. No one takes it from Me,
but I lay it down of my own accord.

I have authority to lay it down and
authority to take it up again.
This command I received from My Father."
John 10: 14-18

There are other sheep that are not of the sheep pen of the Lord. Let us pray and cooperate with the Good Shepherd to bring them into the sheep pen of the Lord. They too will listen to His voice and as the Lord has ordained, eventually, there shall be but one flock and one Shepherd.

Our Heavenly Dwelling

"Now we know that if the earthly tent
we live in is destroyed, we have a
building from God, an eternal house in
heaven, not built by human hands.

Meanwhile we groan, longing to be
clothed with our heavenly dwelling,
because when we are clothed, we
will not be found naked.

For while we are in this tent, we
groan and are burdened, because
we do not wish to be unclothed
but to be clothed with our heavenly
dwelling, so that what is mortal may
be swallowed up by life.

Now it is God who has made us
for this very purpose and has
given us the Spirit as a deposit,
guaranteeing what is to come."

2 Corinthians 5: 1-5

While we are with our physical bodies, we groan from all the trials and burdens in life. We struggle to keep in step with our sole purpose in life- to please God and give glory to His name. So that when our earthly lives are over, we will be clad in our glorious heavenly bodies to be with the Lord forevermore in His heavenly abode.

The Lord Reigns, Let The Earth Rejoice!

"Say among the nations, 'The Lord reigns.'
The world is firmly established, it cannot
be moved.
He will judge the peoples with equity.

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them.

Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy,
they will sing before the Lord, for He comes,
He comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
And the peoples in His truth."

Psalm 96: 10- 13

The Lord reigns over all the world, let the earth rejoice and the children of God be glad. He will come to bring judgment to the world and rescue the elect. There will be complete joy and singing for those who are in the Lord. Praise and glory be to His name.

Living As Children Of Light

"Let no one deceives you with empty words,
for because of such things God's wrath
comes on those who are disobedient.
Therefore do not be partners with them.

For you were once darkness, but now you
are light in the Lord.
Live as children of light (for the fruit of the
light consists in all goodness, righteousness
and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds
of darkness, but rather expose them.
For it is shameful even to mention what
the disobedient do in secret.
But everything exposed by the light becomes
visible, for it is light that makes everything visible.

Ephesians 5:6-14

Let us live as children of light and not as children of darkness. Let us become the light of the world that will illuminate the lost and wandering souls to the path of light and righteousness in Christ Jesus until there is but one flock and one Shepherd.
