Series A Psalm of a Good Shepherd

The second of a trilogy of messianic psalms, Psalm 23 is one of the most beloved texts in all of the Bible. It features two great images of Christ—as shepherd and as host—as He cares for His own. It opens with a warm statement of assurance of the Shepherd’s help, and ends with a promise of His care both for now and for later.

Part 1 - 10/26/15

Psalm 23 – for every season of life

The 23rd Psalm—it’s one of the most familiar passages in the Bible, and you’re invited to join us as we look at the Scripture. Psalm 23 is often recited at funerals, but it’s not just for those who are grieving, it can provide the comfort of Jesus, the Good Shepherd, in every season of life. Listen on Discover the Word!

Part 2 - 10/27/15

Trusting the Good Shepherd

New parents realize their inadequacies to truly provide for and protect their children. They sometimes feel a bit helpless in the face of outside dangers and influences. Today on Discover the Word, we will discuss God’s tender, fatherly care for us as depicted in Psalm 23. A good shepherd leads his flock to “green pastures” and “still waters,” where they’ll be safe. Can you trust the Good Shepherd to lead you into peace and safety and provide for your needs?

Part 3 - 10/28/15

Jesus restores and cares for you and me

Psalm 23 begins by using sheep to illustrate the Good Shepherd’s tender care for us. But then David goes beyond the basics and into the deep recesses of the soul. Today on Discover the Word, we will talk about the meaning behind the words, “He restores my soul and guides me in the paths of righteousness.” During those times when we’re tired, anxious, or upset, Jesus gives us a restored sense of peace and rest. That’s today on Discover the Word.

Part 4 - 10/29/15

How to draw closer to Jesus

Today on Discover the Word,  we will discuss how we all spend time in the valley of the shadow of death, be it through the loss of a loved one or our own ticking life clock. Yet in the midst of our mortality we can still “fear no evil.” We won’t always be kept from evil, but as we draw closer to Jesus, the Good Shepherd will help us go through that valley with our souls securely intact. That’s today on Discover the Word!

Part 5 - 10/30/15

Spending your life in a holding pattern?

Today on Discover the Word, we will talk about how we often spend our time thinking about the “not yet” at the expense of the “already here.” In the spiritual sense, many believers view life as what they’ve got to get through to go to heaven. They in many ways spend their lives in a holding pattern. But in Psalm 23 we’re told that His goodness and mercy will follow us each and every day of our lives.
