Sermons about Psalm 23
The final stanza of Psalm 23 is packed with promises for people like us who live in the tension of this beautiful and broken world. David celebrates God's pursuing love - His covenant faithfulness - and delights himself in the knowledge that God is for him. Because of Jesus, our perfect King, we, too, and live in the reality of knowing God is for us in all things, even when our circumstances and our fears seem to tell us otherwise.
What happens when I decide to accept Jesus as my Shepherd? Are there any real life implications, and if there are what is my role and what is God’s role? How does this all live out? This Psalm although speaking poetically gives us a glimpse into 4 tangible places God leads us…green pastures, still waters, restoration, and paths of righteousness. In more modern day terminology he provides spiritual food and water to satisfy our soul, protection against our own destructive ways, and guidance into the purpose of our lives. What “puddles” have you been drinking out of? What paths has Christ been calling to you walk on?
Dave Wilkinson, a friend of Kaleo and pastor of The Porch in west central Spokane, leads us into the opening phrase of Psalm 23. Throughout January 2013 Kaleo and a number of Spokane area churches will be exploring this ancient prayer poem together.
Psalm 23 begins with these familiar and powerful words: "The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want." King David is reflecting on his experience of God's care in his life, and writing a Psalm to celebrate the benefits of having God as his Shepherd. He begins with a massive claim about the absolute sufficiency of the God of the Bible in his life: I have everything I need. The whole Psalm follows this logic, moving from the character and work of God to the shaping effects in David's life. As we begin our study, we'll look at this first line, and ask how we, too, can experience the total sufficiency of God's Shepherding in our lives today.

In the tenth chapter of John, Jesus identifies Himself as the “Good Shepherd!” When he said that, the people got it! Not because they went to the fair each year, but because they lived in the farming culture.
