Lost sheep // 24-07-20

“You were like sheep that had lost their way, but now you have been brought back to follow the Shepherd and Keeper of your souls.” 1 Peter‬ ‭2:25‬ ‭GNT‬‬

In ancient times sheep weren’t herded forward with the help of dogs, they got to know their shepherd and respond to the sound of his voice, and where he went they followed! Sheep can have a tendency tho to get distracted and wander off, but a good shepherd would go after his lost sheep, a good shepherd would protect his sheep. Thank God that we can know a shepherd like that. In fact Jesus called Himself, the Good Shepherd. He was the One who came after us, He was the One prepared to lay down His life for us, and He is the One who wants to lead us to better pastures. Lord, I want to know You more, help me to recognise Your voice, and to obediently walk in Your footsteps. Amen 🐑 ❤️
