08 Sep John 10:11

11 “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.

The good Shepherd wants His flock to flourish. It delights the Lord when He knows that we are in good condition. Did you ever think of how concerned God is when His sheep are sick or crippled? God is concerned about His church and His kingdom. When the church is strong, then His sheep can flourish. When we flourish as God’s flock, then His reputation is strong and He is glorified. We reflect the image of God to the world. The benefits are amazing when realize what God does to give us life and how we give Him great joy when we live our lives in obedience to our great Shepherd.
