Day 135- Moon Township, Pennsylvania: Who is Our Guide?
What path are we going traveling down today? Who are we leading and whom are we following? Are we following the actions of others? Are we conforming to the norms of today’s culture that is pushing us away from God or are we following the Good Shepherd, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? Do we need to be lead by God and if so where is He really taking us? Do we have doubt along the journey that makes us weak and vulnerable to being picked off by the wolves and coyotes that work for satan?
Why should we not follow God? Is there a good reason why we should question our faith and what we know to be true in our hearts? Consider this, a life with Jesus leads us to Heaven and a life without Jesus will lead us to hell. The choice is pretty easy, right? We are leaders for Christ and we are also followers of Christ. We have many hats that we wear and God knows that we can wear them all with grace and love every day of our lives. Letting the Good Lord guide us, is not a sign of weakness, rather it is a sign of respect and faith knowing that we are treasured by our Father who is proud of us.
In the Gospel of John, he explains that “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them”. God is with us and in our hearts. Jesus died on the cross for our sins so that we may live and love in Christ Jesus. Is this not proof enough? Who around us would lay down their lives for us? I am sure there are maybe a few, but not a lot. When we put our faith in God, as we follow Him, we will never perish or have to worry anymore about what is to come.
