Words of the Shepherd

Cross carried by Christ websize new

Ecclesiastes 12:11 (NIV) The words of the wise are like goads, their collected sayings like firmly embedded nails--given by one Shepherd. Luke 4:22 (NIV) All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips. "Isn't this Joseph's son?" they asked.

John 6:63 (NIV) The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.

John 6:68 (NIV) Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.

The greatest word is God. The deepest word is soul. The longest word is eternity. The swiftest word is time. The nearest word is now. The darkest word is sin. The meanest word is hypocrisy. The broadest word is truth. The strongest word is right. The tenderest word is love. The sweetest word is home. The dearest word is mother.  James L. Gordon (Draper's Book of Quotations for the Christian World)
