We are sheep. He [Jesus Christ] is the Good Shepherd which means He is our Good Shepherd. His pasture is full of grass for us to feed off of, to fill ourselves on a daily basis with his goodness, nutrients, immunities and wholeness. He guides us and commands us where to go, where to stay and when to move. It’s really not that hard of a concept in theory. The difficult part is learning His voice so when we are called, we come. The bible says,
“When he has brought out all of his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice” – John 10:4.
The bible also says
“Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep…I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture.” – John 10:7-9
As a believer it’s important to fill yourself on the pasture He provides for you and to make sure and hear His voice when speaking directly and indirectly to us. Indulge on His word and you can never go wrong.
Christ is our Good Shepherd. He knows his sheep and His sheep know Him and clearly states He will lay down His life for His sheep.
“I am the Good Shepherd.” – John 10:14
