When we think about sheep and their shepherd, we soon realize that this relationship works best when the sheep trust the shepherd and follow the shepherd’s voice. If we put our trust in Christ and listen to his voice as he calls us to follow, sometimes we can find ourselves taking risks along the way for the sake of the Gospel. Yet if we trust that Christ laid his life down for us so we might have life, then we can follow even when the risk is great, in order that others might come to know the gift of life as well.

John 10:11-18

Trusting the Shepherd Who Loves Us
