My mother bought me a painting for my birthday. She got a chance to bring it to me yesterday … the timing was perfect. It is an oil painting of a shepherd and his flock. At the bottom are the words, “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want” Psalm 23:1. The more I looked at those words, in particular, four words stood out and captured my heart … I. Shall. Not. Want.
Because of Jesus, because our God loved us so much to send His Son to the cross for our sin, because he suffered and died for us, because Jesus rose from the tomb overcoming death, because the LORD is our shepherd … I. Shall. Not. Want.
God bless you this resurrection day.
