The Lord Is Our Good Shepherd

"Therefore Jesus said again, I tell you the truth
I am the gate for the sheep.
All who came before Me were thieves and robbers,
but the sheep did not listen to them.
I am the gate; whoever enters through Me will be saved.
He will come in and go out, and find pasture.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life,
and have it to the full.

I am the good shepherd.
The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.

John 10: 7-11

We are the sheep. Jesus Christ is the good shepherd. He gives us not only
salvation and eternal life but abundant life as well. As long as we abide by our good shepherd, we shall never be wanting in our lives. Someday, there shall be but one flock and one shepherd.

Practice Not Idolatry

Practice Not Idolatry

And God spoke all these words:
I am the Lord your God, who brought
you out of Egypt, out of the land of

You shall have no other gods before Me.

You shall not make for yourself an idol in
the form of anything in heaven above or
on the earth below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship
them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous
God, punishing the children for the sin
of the fathers to the third and fourth generation
of those who hate Me, but showing love to
thousands who love me and keep my commandments.

You shall not misuse the name of the Lord
your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone
guiltless who misuses His name."

Exodus 20: 1-7

Is it any wonder why there are so much suffering and pains in the world? Innocent and young children suffer generational curses because of the abominable sins of their parents and grandparents. Bowing and kneeling down and praying to idols are all forms of worship. If we do this to anybody except to the one and only true God of the universe and the whole creation, we reap for ourselves and for our children and grandchildren up to the fourth generation, extreme curses and condemnation from heaven. "God is Spirit and His worshippers must worship in Spirit and in truth." (John 4:24)

The Lord Watches Over You

The Lord Watches Over You

Psalm 121

"I lift up my eyes to the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip-
He who watches over you will not
indeed, He who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you-
the Lord is your shade at your
right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm-
He will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your
coming and going
both now and forevermore.

(Psalm 121: 1-8)

We can sleep peacefully knowing fully well that the Lord watches over us. He neither sleeps nor slumbers and will never let even our foot to slip. Thus is the protection covered by the Lord to His children who obey His will and follow His path. Joy and blessings will be theirs forevermore.

Do Not Love The World

"Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world- the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does- comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever."

(1John 2: 15-17)

We can be in this world but not of this world. We can treat this world as just a temporary place we pass through as pilgrims and strangers, for our final destination is our Father's kingdom where the Lord has prepared a place for each of us. The works of this world are sinful and corrupt just like rust that slowly corrupts the metal until it is no longer good for anything but is just thrown away as scrap. Though we may suffer for awhile as we undergo persecutions and trials, they will soon pass away as we approach the light of the glorious abode of our Lord which we will someday share with Him. In the meantime, we persevere and practice patience as we await the return of our Lord Jesus Christ who will fetch us with the loud voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God.

Jesus Christ Is The Vine, We Are The Branches

"I am the true vine and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He trims clean so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me."

"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given to you. This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples."

(John 15: 1-8)

We are all branches of the true vine who is Jesus Christ. If we remain in Him and He in us, we will surely flourish, grow and bear much fruit. But if we separate ourselves from Him we will soon shrivel and die. Jesus Christ is the true vine from whom we get all our sustenance in life. But like a true gardener, He sometimes has to prune us so that we will become more robust and fruitful. The pruning process is painful while it last, but after the pruning is done and we are trimmed of our excess leaves, we start to grow more fruitfully and abundantly until we become a big tree that bears much fruit and offer shade to all the small creatures of God.
