Psalm 23 Part 5 - Thy Rod and Thy Staff - They Comfort Me
Published May 16, 2010 at 9:35 AM
How could anyone find a rod or staff comforting? Is God more about love or discipline ? Isn't questioning authority a good and necessary thing? Then why is it that most of our modern dictators arose by doing that very thing? What does it mean to make Jesus your Lord? We look at the ways a shepherd uses the rod and the staff and discover that when it comes to Jesus - that the good shepherd stretches out his arms to hold both Rod and Staff - upon the cross - and the space between his Rod and Staff has a name - The Mercy Seat - the only place that true comfort can ever be found.
