The shepherd and his sheep is such a tender, heart-warming picture. Apart from the shepherd, the helpless sheep would have a hungry miserable life that would soon come to an end. But their shepherd leads them to green pastures, to quiet waters. He protects them from their enemies and saves them from the many dangers that threaten them.
In the same way Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Jesus came that we might have a life, a life free from the curse of sin, a life worth living, a life that lasts forever, and have it to the full. Jesus says: “I Am The Good Shepherd.”
