Today I shared thoughts about Jesus as the Good Shepherd.  I’m thankful for a God who continues to pursue us, despite our tendency to run away, get lost, or try to do things on our own.

Luke 15 shares the three parables of the lost sheep, the lost coin and the lost son.  They remind us of four very important points:

  • God loves lost people and seeks them out; EVERY person is important to God
  • God celebrates when a lost person is found
  • We may turn our backs on God, but He never turns his back on us
  • God has compassion for the lost – he understands how sometimes how hard it is for us to come home – but still welcomes us with open arms!

John 10 reminds us that Jesus has the authority to be our Shepherd because He and the father are one!

Today’s Word of the Day is maelstrom, which we shared right after the song ‘Eye of the Storm,’ – it means a powerful often violent whirlpool. In the eye of the storm, he remains in control!

Thanks for listening!
