THEME: The Good Shepherd. VII.
“I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”
“But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.”
In the last part of this series, we discussed about the good Shepherd being the one that first loved us, that chose us, care for us and draw us closer to Himself. While we enjoy His faithfulness, steadfast love and His support to the sheep are unending.
However, in our today’s memory verse, our Lord Jesus Christ reiterates, his personality as the good shepherd. He further his acclamation by saying that the good shepherd gives his life, for the sheep, a typical example is Jesus himself.
Meanwhile, our today’s text shed light on who a shepherd is, a shepherd is not hypocritical, but accomodating. He leads and shows the way, for others to follow in his footsteps. He speaks to His sheep in the best language they understand. He is considerate and supportive.
In conclusion, beloved in Christ Jesus, are you a good shepherd? In your home, workplace, neighborhood and in your place of worship? Just like Jesus. If you are keep, it up and if you are not, today is not too late to be one. May God grant us grace to finish well the race set before us in Jesus name. Amen.
God bless you. *Jesus is coming very soon.* Be prepared.
I will be a good shepherd, wherever I found myself, like my Lord Jesus; the good shepherd.
Father, please sustain me in good works. Help me to remain your sheep till the end of time and may I not miss my rewards in Heaven in Jesus name. Amen.
