*DAILY DEW 24TH/SEPTEMBER/2021* *THE WAY OF THE CROSS* (VII) _Key Bible Text:_ *For you were going astray like [so many] sheep, but now you have come back to the Shepherd and Guardian (the Bishop) of your souls. [Isa. 53:5, 6.].* (1 Peter 2:25 (AMP)) _Bible Insight:_ *C. THE POWER OF SIN REQUIRES THE ONGOING CARE OF OUR GREAT SHEPHERD AND OVERSEER.* You have been turned “to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.” What a beautiful picture this is, especially for the slaves to whom Peter was writing, who were being mistreated by their earthly masters! Peter tells them that they are under the tender care of the Good Shepherd, who has the welfare of all His sheep in view. The word “Guardian” is “episkopos,” which later came to be translated, “bishop.” In fact, both shepherd and bishop are applied to church leaders as functions they must fulfill (1 Pet. 5:1-2; Acts 20:28). “Episkopos” means to watch over in the sense of guarding. Jesus, the Good Shepherd, watches over the souls of His sheep. Does the fact that Jesus is watching everything you think, say, and do make you uncomfortable or comforted? If you’re seeking to live to righteousness, if your focus is on the cross where the Good Shepherd laid down His life for you as one of His sheep, then it ought to be a comforting thought, that He is keeping watch over your soul. That doesn’t eliminate the need for church leaders to keep watch, nor for you to guard yourself from sin. But if we seek to follow Him, we can know that He will feed, lead, and guard us as our Shepherd and Overseer. *MEDITATION* *Thus through Christ’s death, we are delivered both from the penalty and from the power of sin. But we must turn to Him.* Culled from Steven J. Cole's "Lesson 13: The Meaning Of The Cross (1 Peter 2:24-25)" *#David_Joshua_Egbochuo* *#Friday_wisdomforliving* *#Becoming_More_Like_Jesus* *#Daily_Dew_Devotional* *#Supernatural_Release* *#Hello_September* ❤ Links To Visit: *Podcast:* anchor.fm/daily-dew-devotional/episodes/TROUBLED-elli7h *FB Pages* www.facebook.com/DavidJoshuaEgbochuo/ www.facebook.com/thedavidgen/ www.facebook.com/THEREVIVALCORPS/ *DDDblog* dailydewdevotion.blogspot.com/2021/09/the-way-of-cross-vii.html *Telegram Group:* t.me/joinchat/NzXQlVc9Hx7LfaRSnh9fHg Feel Free to Share with Friends.

Many believers waste valuable time and resources because we dabble into relationships, businesses, careers, churches, residential premises and accommodation, that if only we heard from God, we would not try. Many have burnt their fingers, because they did not hear from God or maybe because they disobeyed God. Join us as we explore *The ABC of hearing from God.* Jesus said, in John 10:27 (KJV) *My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me* It is time to invest in our ability to hear and follow Jesus in our decision making and daily activities.
