The weather was not what I had anticipated. I heard it raining, so naturally I left the house my usually time. When I got into my car, I didn’t realize the rain was mixed with ice. My windshield was a sheet of ice. The entire car look like it had fresh coat on it, it was so shiny. All of the trees, grass, and street wires look like icicles. Beautiful, but I was cautious.
I recall a video where 2 men standing outside a gate looking out towards the sheeps in the field. One guy called out to the sheep, they didn’t even respond. However, when the other gentlemen called out to them. Instantly, the sheep came running towards him. They responded to his voice versus the other guy.
Sheeps are able to recognize the Shepherd. His voice is distinct. A good shepherd cares for his sheep. He protects them from the elements and predators. A good shepherd knows his sheep. He watches them, knows if they’ve wandered off, and identifies them individually. A good shepherd leads his sheep. He walks the path before they do, assures there is no danger ahead, and remains close. His presence is never far away.
Jesus is the same way. He is committed to us; loves, leads, and lays down His life for us. Jesus chose death in order to save humanity. Reuniting us with God, spiritually. The Good Shepherd is by your side.
God possess the power to destroy humanity and start over again. But chose to sacrifice Jesus in order to save us.
What does this tell you about God?
Discuss it with friends or family.
God you gave me another chance, when You sacrifice Jesus on the cross. He literally died for my sins before I was even born. I can’t even fathom how much You love me. I was a lost sheep, wandering aimlessly without hope. Until one day, I heard You call, a small whisper, but I recognized it. It was a comfortable call, a beacon to come home. Teach me to love others, the way you love me.
In Jesus Name Amen!
