The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
Psalm 23:1

“This is easy!” I thought when I first became a Christian. Trust Jesus, He takes away the penalty of your sin, and that’s it. Then a Sunday school teacher explained Christian behavior. “This is hard,” I concluded. I discovered concepts like unlimited forgiveness, turning the other cheek and going the second mile. “This is impossible!” I thought. So I passed through the “easy,” “hard,” and “impossible” stages of Christian growth and arrived at a fourth—emptiness. That’s the point at which the Good Shepherd can fill you up. You have to come to the empty stage before you “want,” and you have to “want” before you can be filled.
