Thoughts on Today's Verse...

How do we determine who we will follow?
How can we tell the religious predators, shysters, and charlatans from those who truly speak for God?
Jesus comes and shows us the ultimate test; he is the good Shepherd because he lays down his life for us, his sheep!

My Prayer...

Thank you, Lord, God, for sending Jesus to be my Shepherd. I praise you for the love, faith, courage, and conviction that led him to lay down his life for me and everyone else in the world. I praise you, Lord Jesus, for your sacrificial love and perfect sacrifice. To you, O God, "who sits on the throne and to the lamb" (Revelation 7:10), who is my good Shepherd (John 10:11), I offer up my most profound appreciation and loving praise! I pray in the name of the world's only Savior, Jesus, my Shepherd. Amen.
