Bible Text: Ephesians 1:15-23 |

Jesus, the Shepherd, personally knows His sheep and His sheep know His voice.  The enemy is out to destroy the sheep, you.  Abundant life comes from knowing and following Jesus.  Abundant life does not exempt you from problems.  Psalm 23 tells us we may go "through the valley of the shadow of death", a very dark place.  You're not exempt but you're protected.  Know that you're a sheep of the Shepherd.  Press into His presence. Be utterly dependent on Christ!  And know you are unconditionally loved by Christ.  He laid down His life for you!
