John 10:1-18 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber...
Jesus, talking about himself, lays out for us in John 10:1-18 who He is and what His role is. And He does this by presenting himself as a shepherd and us as sheep. Two times in this passage Jesus point blank tells us "I am the good shepherd." Verse 11 says "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep." And verse 14 says "I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me."
So what did you learn about Jesus as the good shepherd from this passage? How well would you say you know the good shepherd, and what are you doing to continue growing in your knowledge and relationship with Him? Tami W.
