The Good Shepherd

The Good Shepherd

Sheep are by nature trusting and easily led. Their saving grace is to be owned by the right shepherd. In Zechariah 11, two shepherds are described. One shepherd came to feed the flock and lead them to green pastures [Zechariah 11:7; Psalm 23]. But the sheep were blind and refused to be led. His name was Jesus. Another shepherd will come claiming to be a good shepherd. [John 5:3]. The sheep who rejected the true shepherd will follow this foolish shepherd, even though he comes in his own name with no true credentials. The false shepherd does not care for the sheep but will use them to feed his own desires, eating their flesh and picking out even the meat from between the hooves. This is the story of Easter. This is the story of the future, when the good shepherd will return to destroy all those who would abuse His people. Follow Him who cares for you.
