I am the Good Shepherd

We joke about how stupid sheep are.

Did you know, in Palestine still today shepherds lead their sheep by calling them? The sheep know the voice of their shepherd, and follow. Jesus used this fact to explain how his people follow him.

Jesus said, ‘I am the good shepherd.’ His sheep – the people who follow him – know his voice and follow him.

What’s more, Jesus is the shepherd worth following because he gives life to the full – salvation. He did that for his sheep by laying his life down for them, when he died on the cross to win forgiveness of sin.

Do you hear and follow the voice of Jesus?

His word is the Bible, and so as a church let’s be committed to reading and presenting the Bible plain and unchanged. His voice is life.

In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
