No More Tears

Often when I read the 23rd Psalm I think of God being with me in the valley. My mind conjures up a scene of Him walking beside me. Though He is always with us the story the psalmist is telling is that He is our shepherd. A shepherd always goes before the sheep.

Our Shepherd Jesus has gone ahead of us through tears as He wept with his friends. He has gone first through Gethsemane’s sorrow and then Calvary’s suffering. He has gone ahead to the throne with His sacrifice and He waits our arrival with the reward of an eternal life with Him.

That is why He can most tenderly wipe away any tear. There He will heal all disease. He will restore every loss. He will last of all remove even the shadows of death and lead us by the River of the water of Life. What a promise we have and what an amazingly Good Shepherd we follow!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
