Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd
Jesus Christ also told the story of a lamb that got trapped in the thorns of a wild bush, far away from home. The good shepherd who deeply cares about his sheep, is looking everywhere to find this one little lamb. When he finds it, he saves it from its hopeless situation, takes it in his arms and brings it safely home.
I am this Good Shepherd, Jesus said.
With this story Jesus Christ shows us: I seek you, wherever you are, and I want to set you free from the thorns that hurt and hinder you. I have abundant life for you. Allow Me to carry you back home, and you will be safe.
The love Jesus Christ has for you is so great, that he literally gave his life for you. He said:
‘I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.’ (John 10:11)
