Psalms 23: His name’s sake-3
Psalms 23:3 “He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for HIS NAME’S SAKE.”
Isaiah 48:11 “For mine own sake, [even] for mine own sake, will I do [it]: for how should [my name] be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.”
What are you looking for? He said because of his integrity he will do it! He will not allow his name to be polluted.
Now I understand why he died for us:
John 10:11 “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”
The good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. He took our place and died on the cross for his name’s sake. This shepherd loves us so very much because his integrity is at stake, he cannot deny himself.
Permit me to share this story I read on CBS website with you; There was a man who owned a Model T Ford. One day, the car broke down on the side of a road. Now this man knew a lot about cars and specifically this car, so he went to work.
He tried different things and each time he went back to try and crank the engine, it still wouldn’t start. Now, like a lot of us guys, he was a little stubborn, so rather than call for help, he continued to work. He tried different things and still nothing. The car just wouldn’t start.
Have you been in such situations before? Where you’ve tried all your expertise and still nothing works. Well, I’ve been there severally.
A few minutes later a large limousine pulled up beside him. Out stepped an old man who just stood and watched him for a few minutes. Finally the old man looked at him and told the younger guy to adjust a specific part on the engine.
The guy figured he tried most other things so he might as well give this a shot even though there was no way this old guy could know more about this car than him. So he adjusted the part…
To be continued…
