Welcome to “The Shepherd’s Voice”
“They too will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock, one shepherd” (John 10:14, 16). So says our Lord Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd and King of creation. He promises that we, His sheep, will hear His voice, the same voice that corrects, comforts, and leads us to eternal life.
How shall we listen to that voice each day?
He has shown us how. God promises to speak to us through His Word (Romans 10:17). We hear that Word at worship in proclamation and the sacraments, as He says: “He who hears you, hears me” (Luke 10:16). We also hear it day by day in our personal lives and households through Christian devotion.
Devotion is daily immersion in the Word of God and prayer. By turning our heart, body, and mind to holy conversation with God, daily devotion sets us in the Shepherd’s flock. Securely in His keeping, we may face the world with courage and peace.
Each week, this “Shepherd’s Voice” pamphlet will provide you with devotional resources for that life of faith. The Church has experienced 3000+ years of conversing with God! As we draw more and more from that heritage, we will find ourselves joined by countless believers across the ages in following our good and faithful Shepherd to green pastures.
Weekly issues of this devotional guide will pause during the summer months as new material is written for the fall and winter. For June, July, and August, you will receive one issue at the start of the month with readings for the next four weeks.
