The Lost.

Standard

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me, Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love with follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

~Psalms 23

What hope.  What wonderful promises that we have.  This passage is amazing.  My sister sent me an e-mail this week that was something that she had heard at her church that put this passage into perspective for those who don’t know Jesus:

Psalm 23 Undone- The psalm of the unbeliever.
I have no Shepherd.
I am lost in the desert.
I am thirsty.
There is no restoration for my soul.
I am lost.
I walk in the valley of the shadow of death and evil surrounds me.
I have no comfort.
I am hungry.
There is no goodness or mercy.
Will I dwell in the house of evil forever?

It just made me really thankful and peaceful to know that I have such Hope in Christ, but yet very sad for those who don’t know, for those who live without hope and without purpose.  God is Good.
