Daily Devotional from Brother Shepherd

November 7, 2010

Autumn Trees and LeavesThe other morning I’m driving on 41A South through the Sango area. Many of the leaves have fallen from the trees already. This reminds me that summer has passed and winter is coming upon us. A lot of times it can depress us when we think about a cold, dreary winter, but as I look at the barren trees my mind races forward to the spring and I look through winter knowing that spring will be coming.

Winter in itself can be beautiful especially when we realize that it will only last for a season. Let us look through the storms of life and see the spring that lies ahead of us when we’re trusting in God. There is scripture found in Proverbs 3:5&6 which reads, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” KJV

This is Brother Shep asking you to think about this.

Matthew 28:18-20

“If you are growing, you are going”

Children’s Faith

September 19, 2010

A Devotional By Brother Shepherd

Jesus speaks to childrenIn the scriptures in Luke 9:48, Jesus speaks about children. That verse reads this way in the KJV, “And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.” Jesus speaks about children in a lot of different places and how we are supposed to be like children.

It can be a little confusing a lot of the time, but when he speaks, he’s talking about faith. If you ever observe a child and their parents, a child usually believes everything their parents tell them because they love and trust their parents. Christ wants us to love God the same way! Each day we should trust God and live the way he wants us to and that pleases the Father.

I have found in my own life that I am happier, more content, and satisfied when I trust my Heavenly Father. As this verse tells us that, we should receive a child in his name. He is telling us that we have a duty to less mature Christians than we are and that duty is to show them our child like faith as we trust God. An old song that some of the lyrics say, Trust and obey for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus. Let’s all live to please our Heavenly Father.

This is Bro. Shep asking you to think about it.

Matthew 28:18-20

Are you a Rose or a Weed?

Rose or a WeedA Devotional By Brother Shepherd

I guess as I grow older in life, life becomes more precious to us. We think about how we have less days than before and it helps us want to live every day to the fullest in serving Him.

I was thinking about Ecclesiastes the 3rd chapter 1st verse-verse 8. It talks about the necessity of change in all things except, the love of God never changes. If you would permit me, let me read it to you.

My rock, my fortress, my deliverer

July 24, 2010

A Devotional By Brother Shepherd

My FortressPsalms 18:1, 2, and 3 read in the KJV, “1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of the Lord, who spake unto the Lord the words of this song in the day that the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said, I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.” Verse 2 tells me of the security that we have in God through Jesus Christ. [Read more]

How do I know that I know Jesus is the son of God?

July 18, 2010

A Devotional By Brother Shepherd

Jesus Son of GodIn the scriptures in John 5:16-23 Jesus claims to be the son of God. In verse 19 in the Living Bible Translation it reads, “Jesus replied, I assure you the son can do nothing by himself. He does only what he sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the son also does.” Sometimes I ask myself a question. How do I know that I know Jesus is the son of God? My mother told me so, my Sunday school teachers told me so, my Preacher told me so, and the Bible tells me so, but I know that Jesus Christ is the son of God because He changed my life where nothing else could.

To me that is a miracle that only God could do. I believe it was David or Zachariah that said Jesus didn’t come to make bad people good, He came to make dead people live. I hope and pray that you have received the miracle of being born again. [Read more]

Talking with God

July 15, 2010

A Devotional By Brother Shepherd

Not to long ago I got a new cell phone which has a connecting ear piece and you can hear and talk with your hands free. These are great safety features but, as with all technology it has to be set up properly before it will work. I spent some time going over the instructions before I got the right connection and I am able to use it.

I was thinking about talking with God and how we have to have the right connection before that’s possible. I thought what connection do we need to be able to talk to God? The first one I came up with is: we have to believe in God. Secondly we can only go to God through Jesus Christ. He is our connection. [Read more]

Children of God

July 12, 2010

A Devotional By Brother Shepherd

Sons and Daughters of GodHave you ever thought of yourself as being a son or a daughter of God? Boy, that’s a startling thought! Me, a son of God! There’s an interesting scripture in Romans 8:14, “For as many as are led by the spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”

Think about that. There seems to be a growing enthusiasm for people to search their ancestral roots lately. Now here’s something to really think about, when we’re born again we become the sons and daughters of God. That’s how God looks at you.

There’s another scripture that says we are co-heirs with Jesus Christ (Galatians 4:7). Are we living and acting like the sons and daughters of God? Why don’t we all try harder to be a good child of God!

This is Brother Shep asking you to think about this.

Born Again

July 10, 2010

A Devotional By Brother Shepherd

The other morning while I was shaving, I was looking in the mirror and was grateful God saved a wretch like me. I thought of a scripture found in John 3:3 that says, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” This is where Jesus told Nicodemus that he must be born again.

Nicodemus had asked Him a question, how could he have eternal life and Jesus said you must be born again. There are 3 important phrases in this statement. [Read more]

The Lord’s Supper

The Lord's Supper

The Lord's Supper

Yesterday evening my Son Blake and I attended First Baptist Church Woodlawn, TN, and they were serving the Lords Supper. Pastor Jody Kilburn preached the seriousness of the partaking of the Lords Supper and how we should examine ourselves of unconfessed sin in our lives before we partake of it.

God gave me a picture in my mind of just me standing before Him. There was no one else in the world. It was just God on the Throne and He pronounced me guilty of my sins and there was a tear in His eye. Jesus already had the crown of thorns on His head and blood was running down over His face and He spoke to the Father and said, Father, he is guilty but I love him, and I want to die in his place.

That pierced my heart. Just to think that Jesus loved me enough to die for me and God loved me enough to let Him. He loves you this much.

Think about that please.

The wilted tomato plant

June 18, 2010

A Devotional By Brother Shep

This spring Blanche and I brought a Topsy- Turvy tomato plant grower. It is working just find. The plants take a lot of water. This afternoon I noticed that the tomato plant was wilted real bad from lack of water.

The temperature is in the 90’s here today. I watered the plant and in about a half hour the plant was starting to stand up and look healthy again.
