_”I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine” (John 10:11-14)._
*Message:* The work of a shepherd is to seek for the welfare of the sheep. He provides necessary cares and lead the sheep to where it can get the best for it’s wellbeing. Jesus telling us in this passage that He is our Shepherd makes a lot of different in our lives. This shows that He cares about our well being and watches over us always. Jesus is not an ordinary Shepherd but a perfect one. He knows what is best for us at all times and He is capable to meet them. Our good Shepherd is always ready to give us the best if we trust in Him. Think of these.
- The Lord Jesus who is our Shepherd watches over us and will not allow us to miss the way when we consistently trust in Him.
- If Jesus Christ gave Himself for us on the cross, then there is nothing He cannot do for us as our good Shepherd.
- Today is another day of opportunity to reaffirm our faith and confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ the good Shepherd who cares for us. God bless you.
