The Good Shepherd

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

What image comes to mind when you read today’s verse that Jesus said He was the good shepherd? Do you picture stained glass windows in churches? Artwork by famous artists? One of my favorites is by Nathan Greene. Jesus is carrying a black lamb on His shoulders. Nathan has a series of the good shepherd.

We are the lambs/sheep that have gone astray. Jesus is the good shepherd that laid down His life to rescue us from this sinful world.

As under-shepherds, may we also look for the lambs that have strayed and point them to Jesus.

Here is a link to one of my favorite pictures:
