“JOHN 10:1-21 , PSALM 23:1-6”
Jesus gave a description of Himself as the Good Shepherd. Let’s go to see what a shepherd is by way of definition.
A shepherd is someone or a person who tends, herds, feed, or guards herds of sheep.
RESPONSIBILITIES:- He is to provide safety and welfare of the flock. The SHEPHERD will graze the animals, herding then to areas of good forage, and keeping a watchful eye out for poisonous plants.
Reference to the Luke 10:1-21 confirms that in the Old Testament Psalm 23:1-6
The responsibilities of the shepherd by way of the definition depict the characteristics of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, for He laid down His life for the sheep (MANKIND). I will beseech us to read both texts provided for clarity.
Let JESUS be your Shepherd in the period and the rest of your life. Merry Christmas
