We now have the April 2016 issue in the Current Issue section. Additionally, back issues of the Christian Shepherd are now in the C. S. Archives section. Only a few of the latest additions of many articles and meditations posted on our web site are announced on this page —our "home page". You may see all that is available in each category by clicking on a specific "category name" found in the left column (home page). This opens the page which contains the complete collection of material currently available in that particular category. We trust you will enjoy all that has been posted and find much spiritual blessing.

Note: "Chide", "Froward", "Lucre", "Lust-lusteth", "Mortar", and "Pestle", along with several other new words have just been added to the Simplified Bible Dictionary section. (November 5, 2015)

Dear "Christian Shepherd" web site visitors:
     Some of the "Main Menu" areas have been combined. However, all the material contained in these areas is still available. We have also added a new folder titled "Prophecy" to the Main Menu (Several new articles are now available in the "Prophecy" section). "Christians Stories" may now be found in "E Books", while "Biblical Charts and Maps" can now be found in "Bible Study Guides".

Also, we have some new articles available in the Spanish section.

We are delighted you stopped by to look over the Christian Shepherd Website. We pray that what you find here will honor and glorify our blessed Lord Jesus Christ while providing edification, exhortation, and comfort.  (1 Cor. 14:3) for you and every dear, blood bought member of the body of Christ.
   If you have not yet heard of, or believed the "gospel of the grace of God" (Acts 20:24), our prayer is that you will believe what God says in His holy, living Word, and receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour and Lord; and that you will receive Him today.
   Please read and believe the following verses from God's Word: "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). "Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:" (1 Corinthians 15:3,4). "The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin" (1 John 1:7). "Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out" (John 6:37). "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation" (2 Corinthians 6:2).
   The Bible is the divinely inspired, living and inerrant Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16; Heb. 4:12) and we, with joy confess "Jesus Christ come in flesh" (1 John. 4:2, J.N.Darby Translation). "No man hath seen God at anytime; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him."
(Jn. 1:18). May our loving God, use the material included in this site for present and eternal blessing.
