The scripture today is Jeremiah 3:15 (NIV version).
“Then I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding.”
What a wonderful promise from God! We at Living Lord have been blessed with Pastor Roy and Pastor Jim who have been “shepherds after my own heart” to us. Both shepherds have led us through good times and bad, baptisms, confirmations, weddings, and funerals. They have led us with love, knowledge and understanding that can only come from our Lord God. Because of this leadership, we have a strong community of faithful disciples who will carry on this ministry when they are gone. We can look forward to exploring further who we are as a church and where we will go in the future. I look forward to seeing who God will choose as the next shepherds of our church. He has great things planned for Pastor Roy and Pastor Jim, and He has great things planned for the Living Lord community as well!
Dear Lord, I thank you for the gift of our pastors who have led us so faithfully. I pray for the leaders in our congregation and for the shepherds who will guide us in the future. Amen
