  • I am troubled when I hear people refer to God’s creation as “Mother Nature.”

  •  One of my favorite New Testament scriptures is John 10:27-30. Jesus is pictured as the good shepherd who lays down his life for his sheep. We are the sheep who hear, respond to and follow the shepherd. This scripture reveals two great biblical truths: preservation and perseverance. 

    Preservation is seen in John 10:28-29. Jesus said, “I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish.”
