What Shepherds Should Not Want to Hear
If the shepherds among God’s people do not do their job, then the Lord says, “For thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Indeed I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out’” (Eze 34.11).
If the Lord does something because you will not do it, fear exceedingly, because He is not happy, and when the Lord is not happy, the earth is not happy, and when the earth is not happy, God’s people are not happy.
Therefore, let the shepherds in the church do their job and seek for the sheep that have gone astray. DR
Living Stone Built upon the Chief Cornerstone
Peter had said that as Christians we are living stones, but he said this further, showing that the stones are placed upon something as we are being built into a spiritual house,
Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture,
“Behold, I lay in Zion
A chief cornerstone, elect, precious,
And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.”
Be sure that you are a stone in the hands of God that He may use you to place you upon the chief cornerstone, and in that way you will insure that you become part of the spiritual house of the Lord. DR
