Today's reading Jeremiah 48:1 - Lamentation1:22
"My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace." Jeremiah 50:6 KJB
I have a friend who has had an epiphany in her spiritual life. She has just realized that she does not have to work to get approval from God. She knew she did not have to work to get saved but she thought she had to work for God to like her.
I am not sure if she was taught this at church or not but according to this verse it would not have been the first time a shepherd or pastor has led his flock astray.
Going to a church, a good church is not as easy as it may seem. It is a decision that should be done bathed in prayer and not flippantly.
Praise the Lord for men of God who pastor God's people the way the Lord would have them.
