Sunday, February 24, 2019. First Baptist Church, Burlington, Kansas. Pastor Jay Hale. In John 10 Jesus is reminding the people of how a shepherd relates to the flock and how the flock relates to the shepherd. In verse 11 Jesus tells us that He is the Good Shepherd. A good shepherd is willing to lay down his life for the sheep. We see Jesus doing exactly that later on in the scriptures. We Christians are the flock, Jesus is our shepherd. We are to follow him, just as sheep follow their shepherd. In Psalm 23 we also read where God is our shepherd. What does this say God will do as a shepherd? He will provide for us, lead us, and protect us.
