The good shepherd

John 10:14- 18

 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me — just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep.  I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again.  No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”

 

Lying on my bed

Scared and worried

The situation seems hopeless

My faith is in my God

My rock and shelter in times of trouble

I am like a sheep

Surrounded by enemies

Jesus the good shepherd

Will never leave us

He is with us in the valley

Watching over us

“Child, this is My battle and I have already won! Forgive and be healed” He says.

 

Our good shepherd

Enthroned on high

Gentle

Kind

Righteous and just

Prince of peace

In a world full of turmoil

Might God

Everlasting Father

Our good shepherd

Lays down His life for His sheep

No greater love than this

Than when one lays down his life for a friend

Jesus my Lord and my God

John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
