I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. John 10:11
Jesus is many things for us, the Good Shepherd is one of the many characteristics of Christ. When we feel alone and unwanted, know this, that you have a Shepherd watching over you, who knows your voice! And we as Christians know the voice of our Shepherd, and we answered the call of our Shepherd
The Shepherd not only loves us, but he willingly laid down his life for us. As Jesus said “Nobody takes his life for him , he willingly gave up his life so we may have eternal life. (John 10:17-18) Think about it, Jesus is not only our Shepherd, but he was also our sacrificial Lamb that took away our sins
What man among you, if he has a hundred sheep and has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. Luke 15:4-5
Jesus leaves the 99 righteous Sheep to find the 1 Lost Sheep, and when he finds that Sheep, he carries them on his shoulders rejoicing! Jesus cares about your salvation, Jesus willingly gave up everything so he can save you from condemnation! What a wonderful Lord and God we serve!
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. Psalm 23:1
The Lord Jesus Christ is our Shepherd and we lack nothing! He provides everything we need including salvation that can only be received from him. Answer the call from your Good Shepherd! Stop running away and risk being devoured by wolves! Let the Lord Jesus carry you home on his Shoulders Amen!
