A little girl reciting the 23rd Psalm began, “The Lord is my shepherd; that’s all I want.” Maybe she missed the wording, but she sure got the theology right. To have Jesus as our Shepherd is indeed a great blessing. As He moves towards the cross, Jesus holds up this model of the good shepherd, reminding His listeners that a good shepherd would lay down his life for the sheep. A shepherd would give his life to protect the sheep from thieves, wild animals, or whatever danger might confront the flock. We must give the Good Shepherd our allegiance because of His commitment to us. Thus, two passages come to mind: “I can do all things through him who strengthens me” (Phil. 4:13) and “If you love me, you will keep my commandments” (Jn. 14:15). Read John 10:1-18. “The Lord is my shepherd; that’s all I want” – and that’s all I need!

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
