John 10:14-15; 27-30

A recent Friday afternoon found my husband Joe and me, on the way to our favorite weekend getaway. I was enjoying the lush green hills bathed in golden sprinkles from the sun when, much to my surprise, a flock of sheep were feasting on the grassy hillside. The shepherd sat on a rock watching over his flock. I felt as if I had been transported back to biblical times, and given a glimpse of David as a shepherd boy tending his flock. Maybe I had.

A shepherd looks for a luscious green pasture for his flock to feed on and a safe place for them to rest. His sheep knows his voice, even if there are other flocks near by, maybe sharing a field, when he calls, his sheep knows his voice. If he notices one of his sheep has strayed he will leave the others and search for the one. Even risking his life to find that one and return it safely to the fold.

Jesus used the comparison of the caring shepherd to help us understand His role in our lives. Hes the Master, yet willing to serve. He experienced death to give us life. If we stray He beckons us come. With open arms He welcomes us home and tells us we are His own.

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:27 NKJV)

Father, help us hear only Your voice and follow only You.















If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

"Father, help us hear only Your voice and follow only You." AMEN! There are certainly a lot of shepherds out there... and not all of them are the GOOD SHEPHERD. We would do well to discern His voice. Very good article. I love it when He puts things in our paths to enlighten His Word in us.
