Week 39 Day 6
we are sheep who need shepherding
sheep do not do very well on their own
apart from others
just their resources
to need shepherding is a positive quality
receiving and responding to good guidance is necessary
we are tempted to wander off from the shepherd
with head down and engrossed in the life of the moment
we become separated afraid confused
lost and on shaky ground or on dangerous cliffs
calling out for counsel
praying that help will come
there is something about our Shepherd 's voice
that we need to listen to
Jesus lays down his life for his sheep
he is our Good Shepherd and our constant companion
loving and kind in very experience
faithful and true throughout our lives
YOUR GOOD SHEPHERD
Jesus loves you so much, he will die to save you.
2"He who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3To him, the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice;
he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 7 I am
the door of the sheep. 9 If anyone enters by Me, he will be
saved, and go in and out and find pasture. 10 I have come
that they may have life, and have it more abundantly.
11"I am the good shepherd, who gives His life for the sheep.
12A hireling sees the wolf coming, leaves the sheep and flees;
and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. 13The hireling
flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.
14"I am the good shepherd; I know My sheep, and am known
by My own. 15As the Father knows Me, even so I know the
Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 I have others
which are not of this fold; them also I must bring. They will
hear My voice, and there will be one flock and one shepherd.
17"My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may
take it again. 18No one takes it from Me. I have power to lay it
down, and I have power to take it again."
19There was a division again among the Jews because of these
sayings. 20Many of them said, "He has a demon and is mad.
Why do you listen to Him?" 21Others said, "These are not the
words of a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?"
24Then the Jews surrounded Him and said, "How long do
You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly."
25Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe.
The works that I do in My Father's name bear witness of Me.
26You do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, 27My
sheep follow Me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall
never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
29My Father is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch
them out of My Father's hand. 30 I and My Father are one."
31They took up stones again to stone Him. 32Jesus answered
them, "Many good works I have shown you . For which of those
works do you stone Me?" 33They answered Him, "For a good
work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because
You, being a man, make Yourself God." 37Jesus answered them,
"If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; 38but
if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you
may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him."
39Therefore they sought to seize Him, but He escaped from them. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
