“I am the good shepherd, the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.”
The good shepherd
The shepherd’s work is a series of many life or death situations. The sheep cannot protect themselves, so the shepherds need to always think of the safety of the sheep. They stay with the sheep during summer and winter. There are wild animals and bandits that attack the sheep. The shepherds put their own lives at risk to protect the sheep.
Lay down His life
Who would be willing to lay down their life for you? Your parents? Your family members? Maybe they would love you enough to do so. One thing is for certain, which is that Jesus is the good shepherd, and that He always protects us and love us. That is the one thing we can be sure of today!
