I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. […] I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. —John 10: 9, 11
Throughout the ancient Mediterranean world, the shepherd was a common sight. The responsibility and attention that it took to tend and care for the sheep was vital. And the shepherd is often used throughout the old testament as a symbol of leadership and the responsibilities that come with it.
When Jesus came, He turned that familiar concept upside down.
Instead of speaking about the leadership and power that a shepherd must have over his flock, He chose to focus on how much the shepherd will sacrifice to protect and care for the sheep.
As our Good Shepherd, we know that Jesus sacrificed himself so that we might live. He was willing to pay any price to bring His flock home to the One True Father, and He lived out His life just as God desired for us to live! He promised that His sheep would know his voice in John 10:27.
No matter what you may be facing, no matter what difficulties you have, you always have a Good Shepherd who is calling you, guiding your steps in love in order to bring you to a place of freedom and fulfillment.
Take some time, today to meditate on the voice of the Shepherd. I am believing, with you, that He will answer your call and He will return you to His flock, where you will be blessed and loved as a child of God!
Thank You Jesus.
