Sermon notes: Why God is my Shepherd?


Today we are going to look at the Psalm 23. This is a favorite passage of many. Countless numbers throughout many generations have found hope in it in times of great fear and panic. I came to know that even President George W. Bush quoted from this passage when he addressed the nation from the oval office on the evening of the 911 attacks. In Psalm 23, David speaks quite personally of God. He claims that the Lord is his Shepherd. This morning I believe it’s worth finding out why David said God is his shepherd and why we can say the same today. In this message I will be using the titles “God” and “Lord” interchangeably.
