The Good Shepherd

He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young. Isaiah 40:11 NIV

Can you picture in your mind a shepherd in a field with a flock of sheep? He is carrying a newborn lamb close to his heart. The shepherd gently leads the flock to a pasture with plenty of green grass and a gentle stream nearby. This is the picture that Isaiah gives us of Jesus, our Shepherd. A shepherd gathers his lambs, carrying those that are too feeble to walk. Christ also carries us when we are too weak to walk. He cares for His flock. He cares for each of us with consideration and love.

“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me– John 10:14 NIV
