He is the Good Shepherd!
Jesus Christ, our Good Shepherd, will care for us for time and eternity, because he laid His life down for us! He has an investment in the flock that no others have. He is the only honest and true shepherd; the superior shepherd of the sheep. It is He who appoints the other shepherds, His underlings, to guide and protect the flock. Let us thank the Lord for them, and always for the ultimate Shepherd, Jesus Christ!
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.” John 10:10,11
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.” Psalm 23
“I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.” John 10:14
“And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.” John 9:39
He is your Shepherd!
