  • Anthony Sims for verse 1
    If God is my shepherd, then I am a sheep. WANT is of this world and is the most prevalent means by which satan distracts me. America is spiritually a 3rd world nation. We believe worldly wealth is having the special favor of God. We say, I AM A CHRISTIAN GOD, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO FOR ME? He has already done it. Christ took care of EVERYTHING on the cross. All I now need is to be a sheep, and follow. Bible study reaches me in that special place where only GOD can touch me. And it 's the way God talks directly to me.
