S8E55: The Good Shepherd (Eastertide 2015)

26Apr

Sermon #111

We are looking at the "I Am" statements of Christ in the gospel of John, and we begin with Jesus' statement "I am the good shepherd."  In Jesus, we see an example of church leadership, and especially in the example of being a shepherd.  Whereas many of us tend to lead people from behind, a shepherd goes before the sheep to lead them.  More than that, a shepherd is willing to lay down his life for his sheep, and this is a very comforting thought for those of us who are in the flock of Christ.  We also look at the 23rd Psalm, a song written by King David who spent much of his life as a shepherd and knew intimately what it means that the Lord is our shepherd.

John 10:11-18
