Devotional from Brother Shepherd for December 4th


Written by Brother Shepherd

Bible and CandleIn the summer of 1986, I was invited to an Evangelistic Conference in Amsterdam, Holland sponsored by the Billy Graham Association. There was about 8,000 Evangelists from all over the world there. One of the things that stood out to me was the importance that was put on THE WORD OF GOD.

One of the affirmations we were asked to affirm was this, “We confess Jesus Christ as God, our Lord and Savior, who is revealed in the Bible, which is the infallible word of God.” «Read the rest of this article»


Devotional from Brother Shepherd for November 27th

JesusI’m always intrigued by the story of Jesus as a boy in Luke 2. In the latter part of that chapter we find that Joseph and Mary have taken Jesus to Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover Feast.

The scriptures tell us that Jesus was 12 years old. After the Feast was over, Joseph and Mary were traveling back home with their kinsman and acquaintances and they found they had left Jesus in Jerusalem.

King DavidI’ve been reading in the Psalms here lately and I wanted to share a few verses from some of them today. In the 120th Psalms verse 1 it reads in the KJV, “A Song of degrees. In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.”

Here we find King David in deep distress, but when he prayed he knew God heard him. I find comfort in that verse knowing that when I pray God hears me and when you pray God hears it. «Read the rest of this article»

The Cumberland River is up and over parts of McGregor Park and the Riverwalk.Some time back I rode down by the Cumberland River to see how high the water was after the rain that we had.  Many times in the past years, I have seen Cumberland River rise so high that it’s even out of its banks and onto Riverside Drive. I have always been amazed at how much water that took, but the water always recedes.

As the river flows, it reminded me of what Jesus told His disciples, “Out of you shall flow rivers of living water.” This is found in John 7:38. That’s always made me wonder how strong my witness in the Lord has been in years past. Has the Living Water of Jesus Christ flowed out of me? «Read the rest of this article»

Jesus Son of GodBecause of some recent deaths of some friends, my thoughts have been about Heaven.  In the book of John Chapter 14, verses 1-6, it reads John 14:1-6


“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 

2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.  «Read the rest of this article»

Daily Devotional from Brother Shepherd


Jesus Sowing SeedThe other morning I was reading in the book of Lamentations 1:1-3. This brought to mind an old saying that I’ve heard all of my life, “What goes around comes around.”

The Bible tells us that we reap what we sow. I was reading theses verses from the Living Bible this morning, “Jerusalem’s streets, once thronged with people, are silent now. Like a widow broken with grief, she sits alone in her mourning. She, once queen of nations, is now a slave. «Read the rest of this article»


Daily Devotional from Brother Shepherd


Were you ever afraid of the darkness when you were a child?

Jesus In 1939 my Dad built a house in the Woodlawn Community. I was 4 years old at that time and my room was upstairs. I can remember lying in bed at night and because we had no air conditioning the windows were open and I could hear the sounds of the night.

There wasn’t much traffic on the road and the night owls and bobcats would scare me and I thought something bad was going to get me, but when Mama would come and turn on my light the darkness would flee and I could see that I was safe. «Read the rest of this article»


Daily Devotional from Brother Shepherd


Jesus ChristThis morning I was reading in the book of John in the 14th chapter and I was reading verses 15-21. They read, “If you love me, obey me; and I will ask the Father and he will give you another Comforter, and he will never leave you.

17 He is the Holy Spirit, the Spirit who leads into all truth. The world at large cannot receive him, for it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you do, for he lives with you now and some day shall be in you.

18 No, I will not abandon you or leave you as orphans in the storm-I will come to you.

19 In just a little while I will be gone from the world, but I will still be present with you. For I will live again and you will too. «Read the rest of this article»
