We follow Jesus, the Good Shepherd.
There are many places around the world, including the U.S., where shepherds still exist. It is grueling work. Shepherds have to be physically and emotionally tough. They have to make serious decisions daily. They must protect their flock from predators and from nature. No one makes tons of money as a shepherd. But would anyone ask them to die for the sheep they are tending? Would any shepherd really put a sheep's life above his own?
The analogy of sheep and shepherd has often been used to describe our relationship with Jesus. But Jesus takes it to a higher level. We refer to Him as the Good Shepherd—think ultimate, greatest, supreme, and best-of-the-best. Jesus did die for us. Not by accident. He chose to die for us so that we could have eternal life.
The Good Shepherd has shown us the way. As members of His flock, we must now shepherd one another in His image. For it is through us that Jesus continues to call others into this flock. And it is through us that Jesus continues to shepherd His people.
