Today's Devotion

Daily Devotional | Peace in the Kingdom

  • July 29, 2021 | Isaiah 11:9

A beautiful portion of Bach’s Cantata No. 208 is titled “Sheep May Safely Graze.” Sheep and shepherd imagery is used to explain how people benefit when they have good leaders: “Sheep may safely graze and pasture/In a watchful shepherd’s sight. /Those who rule, with wisdom guiding,/Bring to hearts a peace abiding,/Bless a land with joy made bright.”

Do you ever think of yourself as a sheep?

Maybe that doesn’t sound very flattering. But the Bible often refers to us as sheep: lost, wandering, and easily distracted. We are sheep in need of a shepherd! In John 10:11, Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”

We hope you’ll join us this month, for Following the Good Shepherd authored by Dr. Bradley Baurain. Discover what the Bible teaches about sheep and shepherds. Find the encouragement you need to trust and rejoice in God as He leads you. And, celebrate God’s plan of redemption through Christ, the perfect sacrificial and conquering Lamb.

One final note … this month, we have created a special family study! It’s our FREE gift to you, and you can easily download your copy here! Invite your children or grandchildren to spend time in God’s Word with you.
