Jesus is both Shepherd and sacrifice for Christians. Such love is beyond human comprehension. God sending Jesus to die for my sin, Jesus willingly laying down His life for His sheep. All mankind, like lost sheep, have gone astray; “we have turned, every one, to his own way.“
But God, “who is rich in mercy because of His great love with which He loved us,” has come down to us in the person of His son Jesus to pay the ransom price necessary for us to be delivered from the debt and slavery of sin.
May our hearts ponder the greatness of the love and mercy of our Shepherd Redeemer Jesus. Jesus, our Shepherd Lord is the Bread of Life for all of His children. Therefore, with joy today, may we draw living water out of the wells of salvation.
May we look unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, with fresh confidence and assurance that the plan of redemption is finished, and Jesus is with us always!
