God Knows Us by Name

Psalm 32:1

“The LORD is my shepherd; I have everything I need.”

Max's Message:

Sheep aren't smart. They tend to wander into running creeks for water, then their wool grows heavy and they drown. They need a shepherd to lead them to "calm water" (Ps. 23:2). They have no natural defense--no claws, no horns, no fangs. They are helpless. Sheep need a shepherd with a "rod and.... walking stick" (Ps. 23:4) to protect them. They have no sense of direction. They need someone to lead them "on paths that are rights" (Ps 23:3). So do we. We, too, tend to be swept away by waters we should have avoided. We have no defense against the evil lion who prowls about seeking whom he might devour. We, too, get lost. We need a shepherd. We need a shepherd to care for us and to guide us. And we have one. One who knows us by name.
