Blessings of the Shepherd

 

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
 
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
 
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
 
He restoreth my soul:
 
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
 
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
 
I will fear no evil:  for thou art with me;
 
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
 
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
 
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
 
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me 
 
all the days of my life:
 
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
 
Psalm 23
 

Blessings of Knowing Jesus

 

The Lord himself will come down from heaven,
 
with a loud command,
 
with the voice of the archangel 
 
and with the trumpet call of God,
 
and the dead in Christ will rise first.
 
After that,
 
we who are still alive and are left
 
will be caught up together with them in the clouds
 
to meet the Lord in the air.
 
And so we will be with the Lord forever.
 
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
 

Blessings of a Great Harvest

 

…if Christ has not been raised,
 
then your faith is useless
 
and you are still guilty of your sins.
 
And if our hope in Christ is only for this life,
 
we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world.
 
But in fact,
 
Christ has been raised from the dead.
 
He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died.
 
1 Corinthians 15:17, 19-20
