Sermon text: 2 Samuel 23:1-7
Communion reading: Psalm 23
Jesus is our good shepherd. His Spirit brings us to Him, for He is living water, turned to the wine of joy. He is grain of the field, turned to bread. We need not fear even the valley of death’s shadow, for Jesus has gone before us and removed its sting. His rod and staff drive away other enemies without and within. Jesus sets this Table, feeds you, fills your cup, even when you have fears and failings and weaknesses inside you and thorns yet to pull around you. His goodness and mercy in this are deep, and it follows with us all our days. Each day brings us closer to Him.
