“May the God of peace, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him…” – Hebrews 13:20-21
The Bible often refers to the children of God as sheep that are totally dependent on the Shepherd for food and protection. Although we live in a society where individual performance is highly regarded, we should never think that we can be everything that Christ expects from us in our own strength.
We have been brought into a covenant with our Lord and with one another through the sacrificial blood of Christ. Pray that God will equip you, as well as the believers in your community and local congregation, to join forces in doing God’s work.
Lord Jesus, our Good Shepherd, equip your children so that they will want to do Your work together. Amen.
