9O Zion, messenger of good news, shout from the mountaintops! Shout it louder, O Jerusalem. Shout, and do not be afraid. Tell the towns of Judah, "Your God is coming!" 10Yes, the Sovereign LORD is coming in power. He will rule with a powerful arm. See, he brings his reward with him as he comes. 11He will feed his flock like a shepherd. He will carry the lambs in his arms, holding them close to his heart. He will gently lead the mother sheep with their young.
I say to you what I say to everyone: Watch for him!
2 Corinthians 3:18
The Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds.
Now may the God of peace—who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep—may he equip you with all you need for doing his will.
