Strong Shepherd, Weak Sheep

 Sometimes we forget the simplest truths.  Like the one taught in the simplest of church songs. "Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.  Little ones to Him belong; they are weak, He is strong."  We are weak.  Apart from Christ we can do nothing, we have nothing, we are nothing. 

There are several issues that brought this to mind recently, not the least of which is the example of the disciples in Matthew 26:30-35.  Seeing their overconfidence, being reminded of Christ's work, and thinking of the things we are currently facing as a nation, all remind me that while we ought to be bold and confident in the face of temptation and trials; we also ought to be careful.  We need to be sure our strength is found in Christ alone, and not our own ideas and agendas.

Well, for the rest of it, you'll have to watch this.
