Sunday 3rd May – Psalm 23

Reflection

It is brutally honest about who Jesus is and what he has done for us his flock of sheep and lambs. The voice and the actions that follow are one with each other. For Christ to say he is the good shepherd may be easy, for Christ to show he is the good shepherd was indeed anything but easy. He does not call upon us to do anything that he himself has first not done for us. He does not stay aloof and point the way from some remote position. He rolls up his sleeves and he gets right in there going to the deep and painful parts of life with us. His action and his word could never be separated. His love for each one of us could never be brought to question. His faithfulness to the father could never be denied. His steadfastness loyalty to his calling could never be diminished.
