Jesus, the Living Shepherd, provides all good and necessary gifts to his flock. Relying on that promise, MLC dispenses such gifts through his Word, serving as an instrument of the Spirit to equip a diverse corps of shepherds who proclaim and do his gracious will.
May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (Hebrews 13:20-21)
