Good evening Bettie! True, JESUS is the Good Shepherd, He is merciful and takes care not only of our physical well-being but also our salvation through His atonement for our sins. The omnipotent SON of GOD knows His elect and his elect trust’s His heart in faith. GOD bless you and your family, Bettie! Let us press on with our faith in the Triune GOD.
To think the Shepherd died for His Sheep; even more amazing to think God the Son came and died in His humanity for us who are His enemies!
True, Jim, the Triune GOD is so merciful to us, His sinful enemies and His elect that He acted on our salvation. JESUS, while in human form, saw the weaknesses and sins of humans, felt pity, suffered in the cross, and bore all our sins; so we can be pure with GOD’s righteousness in us and have a right relationship with GOD the FATHER in heaven. Because we are saved and the HOLY SPIRIT is working in us, we now know JESUS–the Good Shepherd, as our Lord and Savior. Indeed, JESUS is a wonderful merciful Savior who died for us so He won’t condemn us to hell in the judgement seat.
Grateful for His mercy shown to us while we were enemies of God. It never gets old to think of how much He has loved the Elect
We are truly and humbly grateful that GOD is our GOD and He calls us as His own. With that, we know Him by what He revealed to us in the Bible and there is this hunger to know Him. GOD Bless you and your family!
May that hunger to know Him increases and sanctity us!
This is one of my favourite verses. ☺
Indeed, it is one of the great verses that shows JESUS’ love towards us. He is truly the Good Sheeperd who does not neglect His sheep. We are forgiven and reconciled with GOD the FATHER because of GOD the SON’s sacrifice for us. GOD bless you Lesley, you and your family!
Amen! God bless you too and your family. Sorry to sound silly, but what exactly is your name? I’ve seen some people call you Clark and others calling you Kent. Are you Superman? 😀
No, I’m not the man of steel.😉 My name is Moses Kent Borinaga or simply, Kent. Gersom Clark is just my pseudonym. Gershom is Moses’ firstborn and Clark is Kent’s first name. 🙂 There are still those who prefer calling me in my code name.
Thank you for clearing this up for me as I’ve been wondering about it for a while. Can I call you Gersom?
Yeah, sure Lesley, there is no stopping you; I won’t. Where are you from the globe?
I live in County Durham, which is in the north-east of England.
We passed there by train when we headed for Edinburgh in 2015.
Oh wonderful! Edinburgh is one of my favourite cities. I was born in England, but the family went to Scotland when I was 2 years old because my mum, who was from Glasgow, was homesick, so I have a broad Glaswegian accent even though I returned to England in 1979. Edinburgh is a fantastic city, so much history and gorgeous architecture. When the train stopped at Durham, you would have caught sight of our beautiful cathedral.
Yes, Lesley, there were many good attractions in Edinburgh especially along the Royal Mile. Like Glasgow, I saw statues of scientist, economist, and other great thinkers found in college books, in Edinburgh. It was relaxing to look at the city from the perspective of Edinburgh Castle. I agree with you, there is so much history in Edinburgh as seen in the Castle’s history exhibits, and there are architectural designs that I have not seen before. Of course, who would forget the Whiskey Museum. Strolling in Glasgow was also cool for me. I used the pictures taken from both cities in the blog, mostly in November and December 2019. Actually most of the personal pictures I uploaded where from England and Scotland. I presumed that accent is the same as that of the lead character in Netflix’ the Bodyguard series. I have not noticed the Cathedral, I’m checking on my files now.
I’m glad you enjoyed your time in Edinburgh and Glasgow. I haven’t watched The Bodyguard series, but if you know of the comedian, Billy Connolly, then my accent is similar to his! *blush*
I look for his videos in youtube, Leslel. Sorry for calling you Lesley, I’m milead by my eyes. 😉 There are many english accents in UK as different nationalities speak english there.
No, it’s not you, Gersom . . . it’s a spelling error on my part. 😀
Even I can’t understand some of our u.k. accents! 🙂
Oh, I thought it is a Scottish name. Now, I’m confident that your name is Lesley. 🙂👍 English is a common language to some countries (even in their official correspondences) and the local accent has also been incorporated. Admittedly, I sometimes have trouble with my i and e, and my o and u. 😉
I fixed it. 😀
Yeheh, Lesley, it is! 🙂👍
