Hope for Peace
Today's thoughts may be filled with hope but they are set against the contrast that we live in a broken world, where nations are fighting, and so are neighbours, families and friends. Don't you long for the day when God will come as Shepherd and Ruler to bring lasting peace? In the meantime, if you are brave today, wrestle with this controversial Christmas song presented by a former church kid who has gone astray. Miley Cyrus.
“‘For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search for my sheep and look after them. As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness. I will bring them out from the nations and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them into their own land. I will pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the settlements in the land. I will tend them in a good pasture, and the mountain heights of Israel will be their grazing land. There they will lie down in good grazing land, and there they will feed in a rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. I myself will tend my sheep and have them lie down, declares the Sovereign Lord. I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy. I will shepherd the flock with justice.
