2012-07-08 - His Sheep
"Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture." Psalm 100:3 (NIV)
Jesus has told us in the New Testament that He is the Good Shepherd. (John 10: 14) We are His sheep. As sheep, we are to listen to His voice and follow His commands. We are to go into the pastures that He has prepared for us. We are to follow Him into study of His word, follow Him intoi a local church, follow Him into wholesome pasttimes.
And we are to submit to His discipline, when we wander off into ravines and deep waters. The Good Shepherd wants us to follow in His footsteps and stay on the path that He wants to lead us along. Let us be obedient sheep.
