Let's join together to be the church that makes a difference.
Psalm 23:4 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death...”
The deep ravine between the mount of Olives and Jerusalem is called the Kidron valley. It is also known as the valley of the shadow of death. Thousands of graves line the valley on the Mt. of Olives’ side. The burial places of the kings, huge tombs carved into shapes of buildings out of solid rock jut up like a little city. This valley is kept in shadows a larger part of the day, due to its location between two mounts. Further down, is the place where several wicked kings gave their children to Molech in fire. The area, though surrounded by beauty and modern growth, is still a wasteland today. In bible times, people hesitated to cross the valley at certain hours of the day. David crossed it as he fled from Absalom. Jesus crossed it the night he was arrested.
The valley of the shadow of death looks different to us today. We enter the valley when a loved one dies. We enter the valley when we ourselves are sick, and we seem very low. I have entered the valley in this way myself on three occasions, including this week. Fever raging, going in and out of reality, it seemed very real to me that I was dying. I cannot explain it, but I was in the valley of the shadow of death.
The good news is: The Shepherd is with us even there.
Climbing out of the valley, the sun is shining.
There will be better days. => Rollin Mitchell
