The Lord is my Shepherd ----- That's Relationship!
I shall not want ----- That's Supply!
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures ---- That's Rest!
He leadeth me beside the still waters ----- That's Refreshment!
He restoreth my soul ----- That's Healing!
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness ----- That's Guidance!
For His name sake ----- That's Purpose!
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death ----- That's Testing!
I will fear no evil ----- That's Protection!
For Thou art with me ----- That's Faithfulness!
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me ----- That's Discipline!
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies ----- That's Hope!
Thou annointest my head with oil ----- That's Consecration!
My cup runneth over ----- That's Abundance!
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life ---- That's Blessing!
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord ----- That's Security!
Forever ----- That's Eternity!

Very cool. I love that song and it isn't visible in my posts due to the mod tag but it is visible in my member profile. The tagline beneath my user name is 'a wretch brought into the light' and it is a reference to the line from Amazing Grace.
I once read that other religions require mankind to reach God in some form of another (via works, rituals, enlightenment, etc.) but Christianity is where God reaches down to us and us simple people are saved through the gift of grace.
I just have trouble with those that think spouting it is a good enough substitute
Jesus told us that if we Love Him, we will follow His teachings in addition to believing in Him.
I just have trouble with those that think spouting it is a good enough substitute, or a way to make money / power.
...and provide a "trophy" for satan to parade to the world to convince them that's what true Christianity is even though these are not Christians to begin with...
Wow! Thanks for sharing that. I learn something new every day. That sounds like an interesting passage. Do you by any chance have the verse handy? I'd love to see it.
