Does the Lord still love someone like me due to my poor care to His sheep?
[#17 Q4] I was reading through Ezekiel chapters 33 & 34. I am a young brother serving with the leading ones in my locality for almost a year. I feel very discouraged by reading these chapters because, although it is meant to encourage us by seeing that the Lord is our Shepherd and we are His sheep, I feel that I am one of the “shepherds of Israel” that the Lord is against due to my poor care to the saints, young ones, etc., even before the leading brothers called me to be with them to serve and pray. Does the Lord still love someone like me? I am very confused. I am putting the little hope that remains within me to know if the Lord still loves me in that condition. I would like to know what kind of Person He is to those like me that feel this way. If you could fellowship something along this line, I will be very grateful.
It is important to point out that these brothers do not presume to have the answers to our questions. Rather, they are willing to provide a response in fellowship, and to encourage us to personally go to the Lord and consider all these things before Him.
