Faith Works By Love

Love is my shepherd, I shall not want.
Love makes me lie down in green pastures:
Love leadeth me beside the still waters.
Love restoreth my soul (life),
Love leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea (even) though I walk through the valley of the
Shadow of death, I fear no evil! (why?) Because
Love prepareth a table before me in the presence
of mine enemies:
Love anointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over (because He loves me).
Surely (Love’s) goodness and mercy (and unfailing love)
Shall follow me all the days of my life: and I
Will dwell in the House of Love (who is God) all the days of my life.

(Based, of course, upon the 23rd Psalm)

The Lord is my Shepherd – my new Kindle Book

The 23rd Psalm – The Lord is my Shepherd – has always been one of my favourite psalms. When I was only 5 years old – at my Methodist Sunday School – I remember memorising this beautiful psalm, word by word!

And I have just published my new Kindle Book – co-written with Angelene Jacob – entitled ‘The Lord is my Shepherd’.

The 23rd Palm was written by King David about 1021 BC.

When David was writing this wonderful Psalm it was undoubtedly his fervent ambition to be able to live in the temple which he planned to build but his eternal hope was always to be able to live with his Father God, in heaven.

The 23rd Psalm

The famous actor, Edward Kean, once recited the 23rd Psalm to an audience which was held spellbound by the perfection of his diction and the beauty of his voice.

Among the audience Kean noticed that there was an elderly Minister, and he invited the old man to repeat the Psalm as he thought that it should be read.

Somewhat reluctantly the Minister agreed, and when he had reached the end of his reading, the great actor, deeply moved, said,
“I read it as if I knew the Psalm, but he read it as though he knew the Shepherd!”

The Meaning of the 23rd Psalm

The Lord is my Shepherd – that’s relationship.

I shall not want – that’s supply.

He makes me lie down in green pastures – that’s rest.

He leads me beside the still waters – that’s refreshment.

He restores my soul – that’s healing.

He leads me in the paths of righteousness – that’s guidance.

For his name’s sake – that’s purpose.

Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death – that’s testing

I will fear no evil – that’s protection.

For You are with me – that’s faithfulness.

Your rod and your staff, they comfort me – that’s discipline.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies – that’s hope.

You anoint my head with oil – that’s consecration.

My cup runs over – that’s abundance.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life – that’s blessing.

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever – that’s security!

Yours, in Christ
