David Jeremiah (January-28-2023) Daily Devotional: The Best From Psalm 23: The House of the Lord - Turning Point

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. - Psalm 23:6

 Recommended Reading: Jeremiah 23:3-6 - 3 “But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. 4 I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking,” says the Lord. 5 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord,“That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness;A King shall reign and prosper,And execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.6 In His days Judah will be saved,And Israel will dwell safely;Now this is His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

As we enter 2023 with Psalm 23, notice how it ends in the house of the Lord. Jesus used this image in John 14:2, saying, “In My Father’s house are many mansions.… I go to prepare a place for you.”

In his book on Psalm 23, David Roper said, “It’s not that heaven is somewhat like home. It is home. Our earthly homes are mere signs or reflections—primitive symbols of warmth, love, togetherness, and familiarity. The ultimate reality is our Father’s house—where there is a father who never dies, who makes a home for the lonely, who treats us like family, where real love awaits us.”[1]

The final two chapters of the Bible give us a vivid flyover of our heavenly home. In Revelation 21 and 22, we read about a new planet and a vast city. Those who know Christ as their Shepherd have a future beyond belief.

Make sure you’re among that number. Be certain the Lord alone is your Shepherd!

Everything goes wrong here; nothing will go wrong there. Nothing will be lost; nothing will be missing; nothing will fall apart or go down the drain. Heaven is God’s answer to Murphy’s Law. - David Roper

David Jeremiah (January-21-2023) Daily Devotional: The Best From Psalm 23: Anointed With Oil - Turning Point

You anoint my head with oil. - Psalm 23:5

 Recommended Reading: John 10:7-16 - JESUS THE GOOD SHEPHERD - 7 Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. 12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. 13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.

Over a hundred years ago, William Evans wrote a little book about Psalm 23, in which he said: “A shepherd must be a physician also. In the belt of the shepherd, medicines are always carried. Sheep are very susceptible to sicknesses of many kinds…. Ofttimes at night as the sheep passed into the fold, the shepherd’s knowing eye would detect that one or another of them was sick and feverish…. He would take the feverish sheep and… anoint the bruise with mollifying ointment.”[1]

Olive oil was the shepherd’s great secret. He used it for making and dipping bread, for fuel for his lamp, as a lotion, and as an ointment for his own wounds and those of his sheep. A few drops of the lubricating fluid would relieve the hurt of a cut or bruise.

The Bible compares the Holy Spirit to oil. The Good Shepherd anoints us with this precious oil, and the Spirit’s invisible ministry to us gives us nourishment, brings a radiance to our face like a lotion, and heals our wounds.

Rely on the Spirit’s ministering work today.

The metaphor of oil—the visible and tangible liquid poured upon and absorbed by a human being—tells the invisible presence and action of the Holy Spirit. - John McKinley

David Jeremiah (January-14-2023) Daily Devotional: The Best From Psalm 23: Paths of Righteousness.

He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. - Psalm 23:3

 Recommended Reading: John 10:1-6 - JESUS THE TRUE SHEPHERD
10 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2 But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. 5 Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” 6 Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them.

This simple sentence contains two astounding facts.

First, the Lord guides us in the right paths, knows how to direct us, and shows us the decisions that are best. Just as a shepherd goes before his flock, so the Lord goes before you. He prepares the future for you, and He leads you into opportunities He has arranged. It’s like the old hymn says: “He leadeth me, He leadeth me; by His own hand He leadeth me: His faithful follower I would be, for by His hand He leadeth me.”

Second, He leads us for the sake of His own glory—for His own Name’s sake. Yes, He wants what is best for us, but He intends to gain glory for Himself in the process. He doesn’t lead us to glorify us—but to glorify Himself!

What does this mean for us in practical terms? It means we should offer our total lives to God, seek His guidance in every decision, and use every opportunity to serve Him—giving Him all the glory.

To believers, the Twenty-third Psalm is to live a life of victory, a life of joy and peace, a life triumphant in prayer, in Bible study, in service. - Robert C. McQuilkin

David Jeremiah (January-07-2023) Daily Devotional: The Best From Psalm 23: Still Waters

He leads me beside the still waters. - Psalm 23:2

 Recommended Reading: Isaiah 40:10-11 - Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him. 11 He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And gently lead those who are with young.

Let’s adopt Psalm 23 for 2023! In his book on this passage, J. Wilbur Chapman suggested a practical way to experience God’s green pastures and still waters. He wrote, “Every day must begin with feeding… and end with quiet contemplation of his mercy…. The day which began with feeding must end in quiet thoughtfulness if we would keep in fellowship with the Lord, and absorb his beauty of holiness.”[1]

What a picture!

There’s no better way to start the morning than by spending time in the pasturage of God’s Word, feeding our soul and gaining His perspective. Some people have only five minutes; others can spend an hour. But we shouldn’t skip our spiritual disciplines at the start of the day. And in the evening before retiring, we can enjoy the still waters of God’s peace as we contemplate His faithfulness through the day.

His Spirit attends us in various ways like “waters”—in the plural number, you will notice—to cleanse, to refresh, and to strengthen. But he cannot be appreciated or appropriated in his transforming power until we have learned the lesson of waiting before him in perfect quietness. J. Wilbur Chapman

David Jeremiah (January-01-2023) Daily Devotional: The Best From Psalm 23: Our Shepherd.

The Lord is my shepherd. - Psalm 23:1

 Recommended Reading: Psalm 23

Around thirty years ago, a skeleton was found in a cave near Jericho. Recent high-tech analysis has discovered the man was a Judean shepherd who lived before Abraham. Near his body was a bow, two arrows, a wooden bowl, a basket, a stick, and a pair of sandals. On the bottom of the sandals was sheep’s dung. The shepherd used the arrows to hunt small game or birds to supplement his diet, and he wrapped and carried his bowl with him in order to mix and eat his food. 

Also nearby was a straw mat that served as a sleeping pad. The man was just over five feet, and at one point he broke his leg. Though it had healed, he walked with a limp. He died in his forties. His teeth were badly decayed, but his bones were sturdy and strong.[1]

This unique glimpse into the past tells us shepherding was a hard and humble profession. The Lord works hard on our behalf, and He does so with humility. How incredible! In His humility and hard work for us, our Shepherd tends to us and meets all our need!

All day, every day, a shepherd’s task is to watch over the helpless flock. - Mark Tabb

As the concept suggests, a preacher is one who practices the art of preaching. The word "preaching" is originally associated with the religious sphere of activity. Language researchers note that of all religious texts, this word - like the type of activity itself - is most closely associated with Christianity. Preachers teach Bible truths when speaking to believers or unbelievers. 

Most of the Bible's sermons are in the New Testament. The sermon, as we find it in the Book of Acts and the Epistles, is expressive, but at the same time brief. It is built on the fundamental truths of Christianity: the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The preaching of the Church, in whatever form it is delivered - be it an ardent call to repentance for sins and salvation or the gospel story of a relationship with God and people - is by nature Christocentric.

Christian online preaching isn’t just a statement of spiritual truths, but as a sacred act, during which the preacher, in cooperation with the Lord the Holy Spirit, accomplishes the work of salvation for unbelieving listeners and the process of spiritual growth for the saved. Words spoken by a person cannot strengthen faith, but the biblical sermon in the mouths of preachers has a special power that can transform a person's soul. It is on this supernatural power of preaching that the preacher's authority is established.

Despite the fact that the evangelical Church teaches about the priesthood of every born-again Christian, in the work of biblical preaching, special attention is paid to the character and moral character of the preacher. The moral right to proclaim eternal biblical truths, to preach the Gospel from the pulpit or in another setting on behalf of the Church, can not only be those who know these truths, but who have Christian virtues, a character that reflects Christ. We are talking about a person who sincerely loves God and the people to whom he addresses, deeply interested in the eternal and earthly well-being of his listeners. A person with the good name of a Christian, who has a "good testimony" confirmed by time and the Church. Since we are talking about eternal, enduring truths, the writing of which was inspired by the holy God, proclaim them on behalf of the Author, i.e. of God Himself, it is permissible for the one who knows Him personally, has constant communion with Him and obeys Him implicitly. From the point of view of the essence and basis of the message that he proclaims, the preacher is not the author of his message and therefore doesn’t have the right to change the truths being proclaimed. He represents the interests and fulfills the will of the One who authorized him for this with the authority of His glorious name, and, therefore, the preacher is obliged to accurately convey to his audience what was entrusted to him by God. Freely interpreting Scripture and presenting to the audience their own interpretation of eternal biblical truths, posing as God's revelation on behalf of God, is not only a distortion of the truth, but also an ethical violation that entails consequences. However, in the sermon, it is not forbidden to mention personal experience, as well as the experience of other people, examples from various areas of public life to the extent that these examples correspond to the truth and contribute to a more accurate and understandable message of it.  

Of course, in the modern world, taking into account the development of communications, a preacher is expected to possess the skills of oratory. This is not a strict requirement, but it is always encouraged, as it is an undeniable advantage and serves the greater benefit and success of the preaching work.

There are many preachers in modern Christianity who have achieved recognized success in the preaching work.
