Shepherd to Sheep
"In Thy lovingkindness Thou has led the people whom Thou has redeemed; in Thy strength Thou has guided them to Thy holy habitation."
The lovingkindness of the Lord has been about His people as He rescued them and delivered them from the slavery of the world. Lovingkindness of course reminds us of two certain things, that He is, by His very nature a God of love, but not only that, He is a God who is kind. Attached to the definition of this word lovingkindness is also the fact of His grace and mercy towards His people. Not only a God of love, but His attributes hallmarked by kindness and grace and mercy. The Lord, in all of His gracious attributes, continues to move before us, on our behalf, leading us the way towards the upward call of Christ Jesus.
