The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23
For “you were like sheep going astray,” but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. 1 Peter 2:25
Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:28-29
My sheep (believers) listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. John 10:27-28
Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21
My name is Mark Horowitz. Throughout my childhood and adolescence, I believed there was a God, but never understood or knew Him. Being raised in a non-religious Jewish home, I lived my life without ever recognizing I was a sinner and that the forgiveness and love of God was something needed and available to me. I always thought I was a “good person” and that would be good enough to get into Heaven, especially being Jewish. After I got married, my wife Sharel started reading the Bible. She was so excited about what she was learning. Every day she tried relentlessly to get me to read the Word with her. I wanted to have nothing to do with it. I was hostile to anything that had to do with Jesus Christ. After hearing her say, "why don’t I believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah?" I asked myself that very question. Was it because of my Jewish upbringing? I wondered if there is more to this than what I perceived. I started reading the Bible on my own personal journey of truth finding prophecies of the Messiah in the Old Testament, then reading their fulfillment in the New Testament. More and more God revealed his truth to me. In 1992, at the age of thirty seven, I asked Jesus into my heart as my Lord and Savior. By his grace I am able to share his word with others. The Lord has given me a ministry to spread the Word of God through the Internet using “Biblestuph.com” I started putting selected scriptures together every week with a theme so that believers and nonbelievers could grow in the knowledge of God. I know that the Word of God is vital for salvation and spiritual growth.
