My Cup Overflows: Compassion

Speaker:
Service Type:

As we begin the month of November, we start a new sermon series: “My Cup Overflows.” This phrase is taken from one of the most famous and beloved chapters in the Bible, Psalm 23, a passage that beautifully captures God’s care and provision for us. We often feel like sheep: lost, afraid, and clueless. However, with God as our Shepherd, we no longer lack protection, provision, and rest. We no longer lack deliverance from our enemies, comfort in trials, and rest when weary. We have those things because we have Jesus Christ as our Good Shepherd. And not only do we have them, we have them abundantly, so that our “cups are overflowing!” As you read this Psalm, reflect on the abundant blessings God has poured out in your life. Psalm 23: 1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4 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. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 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. (NIV)
