Lighthouse lighting the way
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10
What is the abundant life that Jesus talks about in this verse? It is forgiveness for our past shame, guidance into good for our present, and hope for our future.
Jesus the light of life.
We are like sheep who have gone astray. Isaiah 53:6
To you I call, O Lord my Rock;
do not turn a deaf ear to me.
For if you remain silent,
I will be like those who have gone down to the pit.
Hear my cry for mercy
as I call to you for help,
as I lift up my hands
toward your Most Holy Place
Do not drag me away with the wicked,
With those who do evil,…
This is a most amazing prayer God gives us to pray when all seems lost. Even more amazing, He gives us a wonderful answer––Jesus our shepherd, not only to save us, but to carry us forever.
Praise be to the LORD,
For he has heard my cry for mercy…
Save your people and bless your inheritance;
be their shepherd and carry them forever.
