"I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep."
(John 10:11 NASB)

A shepherd is one who takes full responsibility for the welfare of the flock. A hireling will run from trouble, but a good shepherd will put himself in harms way for the welfare of the sheep. Jesus is our good shepherd and He put His life on the line for us, His sheep.

The Message Bible says: I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd puts the sheep before himself, sacrifices himself if necessary.

The twenty-third Psalm speaks of Jesus in His good shepherd role. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake. Feeding, leading, guiding, tending, healing, restoring, and providing for the sheep are all responsibilities of the Good Shepherd. Jesus really is that good to us.

Today's Thought to Take With You:
Jesus is my good shepherd. I don't want for any good thing; He cares completely for me.
