MORNINGTIME 2314
 
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1. Well, that pretty well settles it. The Lord is The Good Shepherd and His sheep are His Followers, The Believers,  Christians, in Word and in deed. We all start off as walking dead men on our way to Hell. Some meet Christ, look around, and decide the look around is better, thereby rejecting Christ and continuing on the road to Hell. But some meet Christ, fall in Love with Him, and never look back as they follow Him for the rest of eternity. These are His sheep who are fed by and grow in, Christ. Some will even Grow to the point of such Trust, Faith, and Obedience to Christ that they actually have no WANTS. They Know that Christ will take care of EVERY Need so their needs are no longer of ANY concern to them. Any and every "want" goes out the window because the want is the flesh calling out for attention, and flesh has been put to Death in Christ. The most Perfect Job on this world is to be the Perfect Bond Slave to Christ, because EVERYTHING you need MUST come from Christ, and if He doesn't Provide it, YOU DON'T NEED IT because He WILL Provide all you need to Live in Him. Even your death will be provided by Him. You may die in your sleep of old age, you may die a young person as a Martyr for Christ. This is important, when the Reality of Who Christ Is and the understanding of the sheep /Shepherd Relationship becomes Real, there will be no more Wants in your Life BECAUSE CHRIST IS SUFFICIENT, HE IS YOUR ALL IN ALL, YOUR EVERYTHING!!! That means everything else is outside of Christ, and you Want what that He hasn't already given you??? Again, when you have The Peace that Passes Understanding, and The Joy of The Lord Permeating every facet of your existence, you'll have NO wants, all your Needs will be met, and your Contentment in Christ will be Full. It doesn't get any better than that. Is this Depth of Life in Christ for you? Go for it, it's yours for the asking, and it's yours to, Be Blessed.
