Daily word for 19 December 2016 – 1 Peter 2:25
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Peter 2:25 (NIV):
25 For “you were like sheep going astray,” but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
God compares us with sheep a lot of times, because it is the most appropriate way of comparing us. Sheep always have a shepherd and they (the sheep) follow their shepherd like we need to follow God as our shepherd. And as with sheep we can sometimes run astray from the herd and our shepherd. But we have an amazing shepherd that will always look out of us and as soon as He notices that we have run away from the herd He will come looking for us. Never think that you have run so far astray that you cannot return. Because our shepherd loves us so very much and is always waiting for us to come back to Him!
