Worth a thousand words? Who is Jesus? In His life He demonstrated the story of the shepherd who treats each one of us as His dear lamb. He demands nothing of us or is threatening in any way; just like a “good shepherd.”
Think about it. He never frightens us or stands above us menacingly. When we are hurt He carries us and will never let go of us. This is the picture He chose for us.
God’s Word tells us: “‘I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep.’” (John 10:11-18).
So, who is Jesus? Jesus is what you and I show others He is in the life that we live under His guidance. He lived out His life in a manner that no other man or shepherd, for that matter, ever did. He’s not only the “good” shepherd; He’s the perfect good shepherd. When asked why we believe in Jesus, we can tell them the story of the Good Shepherd. Better yet, if we live that story ourselves, portraying in our lives the love and sacrifice He did, it would be even better. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words!
We pray. “Father, thank You Father that Jesus is the Good Shepherd and that He knows those that are the sheep of His pasture. Thank You that in Your grace, Jesus came to lay down His life for me and all those who believe. I pray that I may live my life to His praise and glory. In Jesus name. Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
