“If The Lord Really Is….”

September 27, 2012

The Lord is my shepherd—Ps. 23:1

If that’s true….

Big breath.

Exhale.

If that’s true, if the Lord really is our shepherd today, what might that mean?

  1. “In God we trust” is on all our money. How much would be different if it was not there? If you ask a lot of younger people what is a shepard-how many even know? Kind of asking to think of God as a father, the one that beat the snot out of my mom and me; or the one who was so busy with everything else that I seemed to be an afterthought; or the one who helped create me and then hit the road. Another disturbing question is God shown by your words or your life. There was a book called, “If Jesus came to my house”, and I wish that I could be home when it happened.

      What would be a good replacement image for “shepherd” in our time and place?

        Replacing the image of a “shepherd”, for me, is really difficult. Most of us like our time with Christ to be comfort; in control;and demanding only a very small part of our life. The idea of a “shepherd” that I see, is not someone hanging with a bunch of white fluffy (church members); singing “It is well in my soul”: praying for aunt or uncle with sickness (forgetting those walking outside the doors that will later ask -“Who was this Christ guy or sorry I never came in-cause no one invited me.” I think that what is needed now is for one person to become like Jesus; inside the church and outside; not worried about what others think of me-but only noticing the great amount of humanity that need Christ and maybe giving it to them-as a true reality; a true love; and at peace with in themselves to walk the talk. Joe, I wish that this was me but this is for someone that can be it to all people.
