Topic: "The Necessity of The Good Shepherd (pt.2.)"
Preacher: Pastor Gary G Johnson, Sr
Text: Psalm 23:4-6
Sheep are still in need of a Shepherd!
What is the benefit of having a Shepherd?
I . The Shepherd gives his sheep ASSURANCE (v4). The good Shepherd watches over the first and the last. He talks to each of his sheep by name. None will be left behind. When his sheep tries to wonder he uses his rod to pull them back.
II. The Shepherd AVOCATES for his sheep (v5). The good Shepherd takes care of his wounded sheep. He makes a table for him and protects him from those who may harm him (family, friend or foe).
III. The Shepherd is AFFECTIONATE towards his sheep. (v6). The good Shepherd loves his sheep. GOODNESS and MERCY equals LOVE. The good Shepherd loves even when his sheep is wrong and has lost his way. He will never leave you out there alone no matter what you have done. There is nothing you can do that will Stop God from loving You!
