Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever! Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from trouble!
Some wandered in the desert wastes finding no way to a city to dwell in but He led them by a straight way, He satisfies the longing soul and the hungry soul, He fills with good things. Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, prisoners in affliction and in irons. He delivered themfrom their distress. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and burst their bonds apart. Some were fools through their sinful ways, and because of their iniquities suffered affliction. He sent out His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction. Some went down to the sea in ships, doing business on the great waters. They mounted up to heaven; they went down to the depths; their courage melted away in their evil plight; they reeled and staggered like drunken men and were at their wits end. He made the storm to be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and He brought them to their desired haven.

I’m redeemed, praise the Lord! How about you friend, Jesus says, in our final reading for today, that he is the “door” and that all must enter the “sheepfold” through Him. Have you done that? He also says that He is the good shepherd who lays down his life for His sheep. He has done that for you and for me!
