Shepherd Of Our Soul

Shepherd Of Our Soul

 

 

 

 

MEMORY VERSE:

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Psalm 23:1

 

 

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

John 10:1-16

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION
The shepherd guides, leads, supplies, protects and cares for his sheep. The Lord God Almighty is the Shepherd of our soul. In our study today, we will see attributes in Him to confirm this. As we do so, may the Holy Spirit continue to reveal more truths to us in Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

 

 

OUTLINE
1. JEHOVAH ROHI
2. BEWARE OF HIRELINGS

 

 

 

 

JEHOVAH ROHI
Jehovah Rohi simply refers to the Lord our Shepherd. Jesus is His name – Psalm 23:1, John 10:11, 14. The Shepherd, ordinarily, is a keeper of sheep. This divine attribute places on him divine responsibilities for spiritual leadership, guidance, teaching, restoration, supply of superabundance, protection and fullness over the sheep – John 10:4, Psalm 23:2-3, Joel 2:24, Psalm 25:9, John 10:10, Philippians 4:19.

 

 

The good Shepherd builds a supernatural confidence in the sheep, which assures them of good and victorious life now and in the future despite some obviously negative situations around – Psalm 23: 5.

 

In His sovereignty, He gives assurance of His mercy and goodness – Psalm 23:6 Psalm 23:6, Ps. 34:8. He is the Author and the Finisher of our faith, disciples effectively and an appreciative Chief Shepherd as well – John 10:9, Hebrews 12:1-2, John 10:15, Psalm 23: 2.

 

 

 

BEWARE OF HIRELINGS
Unlike the good Shepherd, the hireling can be compared to the false shepherd. He works for wages only and by contract. He does not care for the welfare of the sheep at all – John 10: 12-13.

 

 
The hireling is not a man of vision. He is ignorant and without understanding – Isaiah 56:10-12. Hirelings always scatter the flock of God and lead them astray. They prey upon the flock of God instead of feeding them regularly – Ezekiel 34:2-3.

 

 

They are very selfish and therefore not ready to risk their lives for the sheep/flock – Acts 20:29.

 

 

The sheep do not know their voice and therefore can neither identify nor follow them – John 10:5-6. They might manifest their traits by perverting the teaching ministry – Matthew 5:19, 15:9, I Tim.1: 7, 2 Tim. 4:3.

 

 

 

CONCLUSION
The Lord our good Shepherd is always willing to carry out His numerous duties in the lives of His sheep. Decide to be His sheep today and enjoy numerous privileges. Prayerfully identify the hireling but dissociate yourself from them.
