It is Thursday, February 18th. TGFT.
Listen to the word of the Lord to us today.
John 10:11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” (NIV)
A shepherd protects, provides and guides the sheep. A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. Jesus is that good shepherd who gave his life for the sheep. Have you come to recognize Jesus as the good shepherd who gave his life for you. Accept Jesus who is the good shepherd who protects us.
Savior, like a shepherd lead us, Much we need thy tender care; In thy pleasant pastures feed us, for our use thy folds prepare. Blessed Jesus , Blessed Jesus, thou hast bought us, thine we are; (William Bradbury, 1816-1868)
Prayer for the day: Father, we thank you for your protection, provision and guidance as our shepherd. This we pray in Jesus name, Amen.
