John 10:7-18 | Duane Brooks |
Have you ever seen a real shepherd? What exactly do shepherds do? God so often chose shepherds to be the leaders of his people. Jesus used this ancient paradigm to describe his own identity in the world. Unlike thieves, robbers, hired hands and other charlatans, the Shepherd knows and loves his own sheep so well that he willingly lays down his life for them. Just so, Jesus gave his life so that we might have life, fully and freely. Welcome to worship with the other sheep of Tallowood. Our Shepherd is good all the time!
