Daily Devotional • John 10:11

I am the good shepherd, The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.  - John 10:11  

I am the good shepherd, The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.  

- John 10:11

The word for “good” in Greek which is “Kalos,” can also mean “beautiful,” “virtuous,” “excellent,” “genuine,” or “better.”

This means Jesus is not just, “the shepherd,” but He is also the beautiful shepherd, the virtuous shepherd, the excellent shepherd and the better shepherd!

Jesus is also the only shepherd who lays down His life for you!

Throughout the world, you will encounter many false shepherds. These counterfeits claim they can lead you, guide you, protect you and that they are the way of life, but it is not true!

Jesus is the only way. Jesus is the only good shepherd.

A unique Hebrew term often used for shepherd is “ro’eh tzon” which means, “lover of the flock.”

A shepherd was not just supposed to be a responsible watchguard over his sheep, but also a caring father figure who had a deep sense of love for his sheep.

Having this truth saturated in your heart will bring peace to you, knowing Jesus is your fierce protector and best friend.

His love for you runs so deep, He laid down His life for you.

Even if you wander from Him, He will come searching for you and pull you back with His love. ​

No one in this world can love you like your shepherd Jesus!

With Love,
Paper Sunday
