John 10:11-18

THE SHEPHERD LAYS DOWN HIS LIFE

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep”. John 10:11, NIV.

All through the Old Testament we find shepherd: Abel, Abraham, Moses, and David are some prominent ones that come readily to mind. God, knowing that people were familiar with shepherding and sheep and seeing that their survival was dependent on these animals, used shepherd/sheep as an understandable illustration for communicating His truth. Jesus made an affirmative statement in today’s passage that He is a good shepherd. What made Jesus to qualify as a Good Shepherd? Typically, a shepherd does three major things for the sheep: he provides food for the sheep, protects the sheep against wolfs (and if need be die for the sheep in the process), and he guides the sheep in the right path. Obviously, Jesus fulfils and performs these three roles as reflected in today’s passage.
There is no doubt that human beings are in need of the three things mentioned above. The good news is that Jesus is available to provide them all. If you have secured a relationship with Him through a new birth process, then you are qualified to enjoy all these because you are His sheep. If you have not entered into a relationship with Him, then you are one of the sheep outside the fold that must be brought in so that you can also have access to the green pasture. You can do that today!
