The Good Shepherd Lays down his life for the Sheep
One important point about the good shepherd mentioned in the bible is that the good Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. Jesus said, in John 10:14-15 “I am the Good Shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father, and I lay down my life for the sheep.”
That is a significant verse because many of us know of Jesus, like we know of a president or a congressman. But Jesus differentiates that by saying that he knows his sheep and his sheep know him. There is no question what Jesus means here. He is talking about a genueine, two way, relationship between the Shepherd and the sheep.
The sheep knows the voice of the Shepherd
Another important point is that the sheep knows the voice of the Shepherd. I think the sheep (Those who belong to the Good Shepherd) knows what the Shepherd (Jesus) would or would not say, because the spend time in the word of God. The sheep knows the Master and we as sheep ought to know the Masters word, the bible.
Jesus is the Good Shepherd. Do you know him?
Do you know Jesus? Jesus is the Good Shepherd. The bible tells us in Isaiah 53:6, “We all have wandered away like sheep; each of us has gone his own way.” This verse could not be more true. Here we have a snap shot of each of our lives. We have all fallen short, because we are sinners and we need a savior. Call on Jesus Christ today. Seek him while he still may be found. Ask him to forgive you. Surrender everything him and ask him to change you from the inside out. He loves you and he will change you! Seek him! Praise The Lord. Amen…
