Colossians 3:12-14 NKJV

“Put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.”

The path is straight and narrow (Matthew 7:13-14). It can be so hard to navigate. But we don’t have to do it alone.

Christ leads us, if we ask Him. He holds us close in our darkest hours. God grants us the Holy Spirit in us to comfort us in these moments.

Not just that, He holds us in our lightest ones as well, that we may “hear joy and gladness” (Psalm 51:8) that much louder. But there is more.

Christ holds us steady when we stumble. C.S. Lewis once said that, “If we only have to will to walk, then God is pleased with our stumbles.”

How true! And Christ lovingly guides us away from the twisted burrs we stubbornly wander into.

He stands us tall when we walk. Christ lifts us up, His little lambs, into His arms when we tire.

When we acknowledge that we really don’t know what we’re doing, He grants us wisdom to stay on track.

When we acknowledge that we really don’t have the strength to continue alone, He grants us direction to stay on track.

When we acknowledge that we really don’t walk for our own reasons, He grants us purpose to stay on track.

Let not the wolves ensnare you. Keep up faith, my fellow sheep, for we have a Shepherd on our side (Psalm 23).

“Save Your people and bless Your inheritance; be their Shepherd and carry them forever.” Psalm 28:9 NIV
