Shepherding Grace Ministries
insight into God's grace that satisfies the longing Christian's heart
and how God's shepherding grace provides for the LIFE that Jesus
Christ and His Apostles lived and taught.
Our Shepherding Grace Purpose:
of a shepherd and his sheep is a picture of God's relationship with
His people throughout the Scriptures. This model provides practical
insight and teaching for the one who desires to have the "abundant
life" that Jesus, the Good Shepherd
, promises us,
, in John 10:10b. God calls His people sheep. "We
are His people and the sheep of His pasture"
Ezekiel 34:31). This shepherding model may be traced from Genesis to Revelation. It applies to all types
of relationships: friends, marriage, families, Christian leadership,
churches, missions, businesses, the marketplace and government.
desire to be what God intends them to be and to enjoy the life that
God has designed for them. Yet, teachers, preachers and authors tend
to place emphasis upon one's spiritual performance instead of dependence
on the Lord Jesus Christ for His life, wisdom and power. Christians
are often taught to "be stronger" or "do better" or
"work harder." We understand the concept that our salvation
only comes by the grace of God, but often one fails to understand that
the Christian life is also lived day by day, by drawing on the same
grace of God. When individuals enter into this daily "grace relationship"
they experience joy, peace, purpose and fulfillment regardless of the
circumstances they face.
Our Shepherding Grace Goals:
- Presenting God's GRACE as personified in Jesus Christ.
- That the disciple will understand and embrace God's sanctifying grace design for the Christian
life - dependence upon Jesus Christ as the Good Shepherd for daily living.
- That Christian
leaders will give of themselves as gracious shepherds caring for those
under their influence as Jesus our Good Shepherd gives of Himself.
- That husbands,
dependent upon Jesus our Good Shepherd, will give of themselves to their
wife as Jesus gives of Himself to them.
- That wives, dependent
upon Jesus our Good Shepherd, will give of themselves to their husband
as the church is to Christ.
- That believers
as they respond to the Good Shepherd will also be led to encourage fellow
sheep with shepherding grace in their personal walk and ministry.
