Jesus our Good Shepherd

Throughout Scripture, there is a shepherd song. Its notes carry care and comfort, guidance and protection, and the promise of life in all its fullness. The shepherd desires to give his sheep abundant provision, so that they may know the goodness and delight of the one who leads them beside quiet waters and to green pastures.

Jesus takes this song upon his lips to speak of his identity and mission: “I am the good shepherd.” Those who know his voice, who hear and follow the shepherd, will know the life he gives: life that is truly life. Mysteriously, this life that Jesus offers comes through his own self-giving: “ The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”

What might this mean for our lives? How might we take hold of what Jesus offers in this image? What is his invitation to you and to me?

We hope you can join us as Donald Goodhall leads us to consider and respond to Jesus, our Good Shepherd.
