In continuing the “Before” Christmas series where we are looking at how prophecies spoken by the prophet Isaiah were fulfilled at the first Christmas, we discover the most remarkable and extraordinary event of all time. The event centers around the prediction that God will be with us. The reality of God’s presence truly is one of the greatest gifts of Christmas.
What does it mean for the Lord to be our Shepherd? According to David in Psalm 23, it means that we shall never be in want of anything. We will be made to slow down, quiet down, and sit down. Our souls will be restored and whole, like they were designed to be from the beginning. We shall not fear evil or death – no matter what we’re facing. Many of us know the Psalm… Let’s make sure we know the Shepherd.
