Christ    is    the    true    Shepherd;    nobody    can    take    away    His    sheep

Today Jesus again identifies Himself as a shepherd. The shepherd is the individual who spends most of his life with his sheep. It is his responsibility to protect the sheep. He also leads them. The shepherd makes sure the sheep have sufficient water to drink and grass to eat. He also protects the sheep from wolves and other predators.
The shepherd’s life  is one of constant movement. After the sheep have eaten  all the grass in one pasture, the shepherd moves them to another green pasture. The shepherd’s life also is a lonely life. For weeks, the shepherd’s only companions are his sheep. Since his sheep are his closest companions and friends, most likely the shepherd comes to know his sheep well. He knows which sheep are  docile and he also recognizes the unruly and stubborn sheep. Yet, the shepherd is committed to caring for each of the sheep, even the aggravating ones.
Usually the shepherd has a very strong bond with his sheep. He not only is responsible for them, he truly cares about them  (and perhaps even coming  to “love” them)! In some ways, the sheep become the shepherd’s family. They are his constant companions. The sheep only would follow the voice of their shepherd. They do not follow another person. The bond between the shepherd and the sheep is very strong and real.
Jesus is our shepherd! Jesus sticks with us no matter what. He is committed to caring for us and leading us. Jesus comes and finds us when we are lost and afraid. Jesus will keep looking for us until He finds us. However, do we have the same strong bond with Jesus as the sheep have with their shepherd? Do we recognize Jesus’ voice when He calls us? Do we listen for His voice? Do we trust that Jesus will protect us at all costs?
Today may we take time to thank Jesus for loving us so deeply. May we also thank Jesus for His tender care and protection. Jesus is our shepherd! We can depend on Him always!
