Marcus couldn't remember a time when his chains did not rub his wrists and ankles raw. And yet one day a messenger stood before him with good news. News he couldn't believe: "The truth will set you free." Marcus didn't understand how, but with simple faith he followed and the chains were broken. The messenger guided Marcus to his new home and introduced him to the king who had set them free. ^Yet after Marcus had enjoyed the bounties of his new life, he wondered what was happening at his old home. After slipping back there, he is quickly ordered by his old master to put his chains back on. Will he remember the truth that set him free and know that the chains hold no power? ^Originally published in the bestseller Tell Me the Truth, this beautifully written and illustrated tale shares an inspiring parable that both children and adults will be moved by.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters.He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.Psalm 23The words of Psalm 23 have brought comfort to millions the world over. They tell of the Lord's desire to refresh His people and of His faithfulness to guide them safely through all of life's trials--and even death--to His heavenly home.Jesus Christ is the Shepherd so beautifully described in this psalm. He said, "I am the Good Shepherd; the Good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep" (John 10:11). Jesus gave His life for you and me, to pay for our sins.The Bible says, "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way, and the Lord hath laid on Him [Jesus] the iniquity of us all" (Isaiah 53:6).But Jesus calls us back to Himself: "Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28). "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10b).Jesus died for us and rose again, forever breaking the power of sin and death. And now, seated at the right hand of the Father, He promises: "He that heareth My Word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but is passed from death unto life" (John 5:24).If you have never trusted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, receive Him today. Then the promises of this beloved psalm will be yours: "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever" (Psalm 23:6).
