The Lamb who is the Servant Shepherd

SCRIPTURE

v.17 For the Lamb at the centre of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

OBSERVATION

This chapter takes “time out” for praise, worship, comfort and hope and uses for us more familiar visual symbols.

APPLICATION

Are we allowing the Lamb to lead us to springs of living water?  Are we letting Him wipe away every tear from our eyes, or are we struggling in our own strength?  Only by turning to Him and allowing Him to shepherd us will our own strivings cease.

PRAYER

Loving God, you long to embrace me, to help and guide me through life.  Help me to open my eyes to You to cease striving and just look to You for all my joys and needs.
