Today's Verse: John 10:11

Monday, June 10, 2019

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

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

The Bible uses the term "shepherd" for all kinds of good leaders. But only One is the quintessential Shepherd. He shows us that the heart of godly leadership is sacrifice not status, service not selfishness. We follow this Shepherd because we know he values us above his own life.

My Prayer...

Holy and sacrificial Father, I am humbled to silence by your plan to have Jesus be both Lord and Lamb, Shepherd and Sacrifice. Thank you for giving me life by his death and leadership by his example. I offer you my undying thanks in Jesus' name. Amen.
