THE GENTLEST VERSE

THE GENTLEST VERSE The picture might well have been one of a small, shivering group of sheep and lambs out on a cold mountainside in the dark without a shepherd, scared, alone and so afraid. It’s our picture; it’s who we are. Only God knows how many dark nights I have soaked the pillow with tears at how things are, and how defenseless I am. And I also know that I am not alone. The human pathway through life is fraught with many perils. The enemy is determined and fearless. We are weak and defenseless against overpowering odds—or so it often seems. But, look! Coming up the side of the dark and lonely mountain, it is the Good Shepherd! Yes, and with Light and food and love, ready to lead the helpless flock to green pastures and unending care! Oh, the wonderment of it all! It washes over the flock in waves of relief. He knows! He cares! Yes, He cares! He is gentle and kind, and they hear Him say, “Fear not, little flock, for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom!” Luke 12:32 Oh, the ceaseless wonder and joy at such a Shepherd! He has spoken, and the Shepherd always keeps His promises. Please, dear aching, broken hearts out there, copy these precious words and hang them where you can see them and rejoice even in the darkest, coldest night! It must surely be the gentlest verse in all of Scripture, and how I thank God for it. May God bless us as we rejoice in the inimitable words our Savior has spoken!



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
