The Great Shepherd

jesus the great shepherd

 

Jesus became the great shepherd when He was raised from the dead. Through the shed blood, a lamb without spot, sacrificed for each of us, we have a shepherd. Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant” (Hebrews 13:20). Peter says that when the chief Shepherd appears we will receive a crown of glory. We were as sheep gone astray but now we have a shepherd who leads and guides us through life. Sheep are not very good at taking care of themselves. They need a shepherd. Jesus is my shepherd I shall not want. As the great Shepherd He supplies all of our needs according to His riches. He is a provider, leader, guide, and He cares for us as He displayed in His ultimate sacrifice, laying down His life for the sheep.
