Jesus: Our Shepherd
Mike Schrage, Executive Director
The birth of Christ is a wonderful Christmas message for those who love and follow him. It was His “good news for all men” message because it is a message of inclusion, invitation, and imagination. Jesus said: “I am the Good Shepherd. I know my own sheep and my own sheep know me … I put the sheep before myself, sacrificing myself if necessary. You need to know that I have other sheep in addition to those in this pen. I need to gather and bring them, too. They’ll also recognize my voice. Then it will be one flock, one Shepherd.” John 10:14-16 MSG
As we remember Jesus in a manger, with the flocks of sheep which were watched by their shepherds, let’s not forget that the message from God is clear and consistent. He desires all mankind to know, love, and follow Him, making one flock led by one Shepherd, our King Jesus!
