The lord is my shepherd – Part 3
Key verse: Psalm 23:3b: “He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake,” (NKJV).
The Bible says that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ Our Lord (Romans 6:23). Jesus was speaking to Nicodemus in John Chapter 3 and He got to verse 7 and said: “You must be born again.” I heard the word of God and everyone who is a child of God heard the word of God and I saw that I needed to be born again; I needed to walk away from what the enemy of my soul, Satan the devil had done in my life and came over to Jesus side.
A beautiful hymn says, “move on to the righteous side with God for God is going to do a great thing in your life.”
Right relationship with God results to right relationship with your fellow men, right thought, right actions, right responses and correct in all the way because God is in charge. He leads and you follow. I submitted myself to the leadership of Jesus and I want you to do the same today.
I surrendered completely to the leadership of Jesus, but if you think you are wise and you know it all, you do not know anything. The Bible says, “seeth thou a man that is wise in his own way, there is much hope for a fool than for such a man,” (Proverbs 29:20). Jesus is the wisdom of God and the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 1:18 that Jesus is the power and wisdom of God. So, I submit myself and Jesus leads me in the path of righteousness wherever I go. Jesus being the wisdom of God brings the wisdom of God into your life as you surrender to Him.
Jesus leads us in the path of righteousness for His name’s sake, so that, my life, your life and the life of everyone who has surrendered to Christ can bring glory to God. We lift up the name of Jesus, we exalt the name of Jesus, it is Jesus all the way and the blessings continue to pour.
The Lord is your shepherd and as you trust in Him, He will lead you in the right paths in your life. He will always be there to save you and lead you back to safety. I encourage you my beloved to take a decision to follow Christ today. It is what I call the most brilliant decision you can take on this side of heaven. I, therefore, call upon you today with the love of God to take decision for Christ voluntarily, personally, willingly, joyfully and in absolute surrender.
