I am the Good Shepherd. John 10:11
I want to know you. . . because to know you is to LOVE you. . . to know you is to TRUST you. . . if you are the Good Shepherd , then I must be a good sheep. . . so what is required? What must I do to be a Good sheep?
It’s hard to believe that all I must do is Follow Him. . . graze where He leads me, rest where He watches over me. . . stand secure in my value to Him.
Luke 15 is clear. He values each precious sheep over all the sheep together. . He will always leave the 99 to rescue His one little precious sheep . . .
His job is to be a Good shepherd. There’s a lot to that. My job is to be a good sheep and well. . . that’s pretty simple.
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23: 1-4
I can trust where He leads me because He is Good.
