I want to thank Dr. Randall McKinion for work of his that I used for a few of these points.

We want Shepherds like Him, but not Him . . .

Throughout the Old Testament, the most common themes are:

1. God is Sovereign and our provision and joy in life

2. Mankind wants to condescend Him and pervert His nature to be like us . . . recognizable and iconic

3. God alone is faithful

4. Mankind cannot be faithful

One of the most telling and horrifying  – even defining passages of the Old Testament is

The Lord said to Samuel, “Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from being king over them. NAU1 Sa 8:7

The deception that our mother, Eve, fell for still rings in our ears – go your own way. We want a king like us, for us, from us . . . the heart of idolatry is always self-worship.

I am indebted to some brothers for continually introducing me to more edifying music. Andrew Peterson is one of those musicians. This song is very enlightening. I hope you see it that way, too.
