The Lord Is Our Good Shepherd
"Therefore Jesus said again, I tell you the truth
I am the gate for the sheep.
All who came before Me were thieves and robbers,
but the sheep did not listen to them.
I am the gate; whoever enters through Me will be saved.
He will come in and go out, and find pasture.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life,
and have it to the full.
I am the good shepherd.
The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.
John 10: 7-11
We are the sheep. Jesus Christ is the good shepherd. He gives us not only
salvation and eternal life but abundant life as well. As long as we abide by our good shepherd, we shall never be wanting in our lives. Someday, there shall be but one flock and one shepherd.
