Wednesday Wallpaper: I Am the Good Shepherd

Scriptures: John 10:11-16
by Jacob Abshire on May 13, 2015

Jesus is the good shepherd. In contrast to the Jewish leaders of His day, Jesus calls Himself the noble shepherd who lays down His life for His sheep. The leaders of His time are described as hired help. They care only for self-interest. This “I AM” statement also foreshadows the Lord’s substitutionary death on the cross (cf: Jn. 10:15; 6:51; 11:50-51; 17:19; 18:14). This design was requested by Rachel.

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.”

John 10:11-16
