We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word.
"...for the lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." -Revelation 7:17
In the midst of tremendous suffering and chaos that surrounded these weary tribulation saints Christ is faithful to meet them in their moment of trial and shepherd them into faith, into eternity. That is His unchanging nature and His heart for all people. That thought is concentrated in Christ's teaching, "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep."* And while this glorious company of battered saints may have taken their sweet time to come to Christ, He places no lesser value on their faith. Why? Because it is not about them. Furthermore, our faith is not really about us. It is always be about Christ, and His faithfulness. Our good shepherd remains faithful. He will shepherd them as He has done so for us. *John 10:10-11
