(This article was originally part of a larger exegesis on Psalm 23. I also gave it as a Chapel message at Emmaus Bible College.)
The Lord As Shepherd Means: The Lord Comforts.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Welcome In The Name Of The Father, Son, And Holy Spirit
Yesterday my Resplendent Bride passed from the imperfect to the perfect.
Leonard Cohen once sang these words:
My Resplendent Bride’s arch nemesis returned this weekend: mouth sores.
My Resplendent Bride’s parents came up from St. Louis for Danielle’s transplant and stuck around like macchiato whip on a hipster’s face forest.
Today at 2:30, Lord willing, medical professionals shall unfreeze bone marrow some selfless young fellow gave to a stranger. These cells shall be transplanted into my Resplendent Bride’s dying body, whereupon, Lord willing, they shall happily take up residence and flourish: bringing forth new life.
Last week Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church held a theological symposium on the work of the Holy Spirit.
