DIG for Saturday the 23rd of February…..I am the good shepherd…..John 10 v 11

Sheep do not have a great reputation; I’ve heard it said that they are a rather stupid animal.

Reading this verse however I am glad to be described as a sheep.

I am very glad to be a sheep as my shepherd is Jesus.

A shepherd looks after the sheep, takes care of them and guides them; he provides the sheep with food and pasture, and guides them to water for refreshment.

Jesus does a similar job for each and every one of us, his own sheep.

He guides us and looks out for us; he provides us with refreshment and nourishment.

But it gets even better for us; as the “good” shepherd Jesus even died for his sheep; He died so that we would be free from spiritual death and receive His salvation.

What an awesome shepherd; He even died for his sheep; He died for you!

On the cross Jesus dealt with the issue of sin so that we would not have to, instead we could have His righteousness (2 Corinthians 5 v 21).

I for one am glad to be one of His sheep.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Jesus that you are MY good shepherd”.

John 10 v 11…..I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep
