I Am the Good Shepherd

John 10:11. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”

A shepherd feeds, waters, leads and protects his sheep. Is one is missing from the flock, he will go and find it. If a preying animal comes he will defend and protect his sheep even giving his life if necessary. Jesus has done that. He has given us His Holy Spirit to lead us. He has given us His written word to feed us. He gave His life to defeat the evil that wants to consume us. He asks us to help Him find those who are lost and bring them into the sheep fold. A sheep can’t survive on its own. The question is are you trying to survive alone or are you with the fold in a local church?
