Jesus Is The Gate And The Good Shepherd

"I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep.
All who ever 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; I know My sheep and
My sheep know Me- just as the Father knows
Me and I know the Father- and I lay down My
life for the sheep.
I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen.
I must bring them also.
They too will listen to My voice, and there shall
be one flock and one shepherd."

John 10:7-10 , 10:14-16

Jesus Christ is the gate and also the good shepherd. All the others who came before Him were all thieves and robbers. He is the only way to salvation and nobody can enter heaven except through Him. He is a good shepherd who knows the name of each and every sheep He has. He calls them by their name and they listen to His voice. Jesus is the good shepherd who laid down His life for His sheep so that they may enjoy eternal life. He knows that there are other sheep not belonging to His sheep pen. He longs to bring them to His sheep pen too so that the day will come when there will be but one sheep pen and one shepherd. We are all called upon to gather the lost sheep of God and bring them to the sheep pen of the Lord so that they may also enjoy abundant and eternal life.

Hi, found your image of "jesus at the gate" and wonder where you found it. I director for an upcoming retreat and love this image and would love to use it for the retreat. Only problem is I need an image that can be enlarged to fit on a poster and normal letter size paper. Current size of the image loses sharpness. Can you help?

Hi Jfelderh,
Sorry I just copied the picture from Google. Just look for somebody that is familiar with adobe and he can have your picture enlarged. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.
