I Am – The Good Shepherd

by

Psalm 23:1-3 God, my shepherd!
I don’t need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.

I Am – The Gate for the Sheep

by

Jesus says, “How narrow is the gate that leads to life.” I think, we’ve come to believe that this is about restriction. But really . . . it’s about funneling ourselves into a central place. Our choice is not to focus on the narrow, but to narrow our focus . . . . It is about an entry into the expansive. There is a vastness in knowing you’re a son/daughter worth having. – Gregory Boyle

I Am – The Light of the World

Don’t be fearful about the journey ahead; don’t worry abut where you are going or how you are going to get there. If you believe in the first person of the Trinity, God the Father, also believe in the second person of the Trinity, the one who came as the Light of the World, not only to die for people, but to light the way… This one, Jesus Christ, is himself the Light and will guide your footsteps along the way. – Edith Schaeffer

To the Church: 1 Cor 14

by

The church exists primarily for two purposes: to worship God and to work for his kingdom in the world… The church also exists for a third purpose, which serves the other two: to encourage one another, to build one another up in faith, to pray with and for one another, to learn from one another and teach one another, and to set one another examples to follow, challenges to take up, and urgent tasks to perform. – N.T. Wright

To the Church: 1 Corinthians 11

by

The love of God again make us free … to set a low value on those things wherein we are subject to others – our wealth, our position, our reputation, and our life – and to set a high value on those things which no man can take from us – our integrity, our righteousness, our love for all men, and our communion with God. – Kenneth Boulding
