So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord,
continue to live in him,
rooted and built up in him,
strengthened in faith as you were taught,
and overflowing with thankfulness.
Why do lambs always make me think of my Lord?
Is it because I’m prone to wander?
Is it because the world sometimes seems
more like a pig pen than a green pasture
and I long for heaven?
Or is it because I have a Good Shepherd watching out for me?
It’s all of the above and more.
Once upon a time
way back in the New Testament days
a pure, holy, and spotless Lamb was sacrificed for me
and for you.
Christ paid my sin debt—and yours.
He rose from the dead
and one day He’s coming back for me
and you (if you’re one of his sheep).
As always—it’s all about Jesus.
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.
And I pray that you,
being rooted and established in love,
may have power,
together with all the saints,
to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—
that you may be filled
to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Here’s the ABC’s of the gospel (How I became one of God’s sheep).
A- I admitted that I was a sinner.
B- I believed(trusted) that Jesus died for me.
C- I confessed that Jesus is my Lord and Savior.
