John 10:11-18

2012-04-25 — Just can’t get enough of that Good Shepherd.

BIBLE PASSAGE — I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand, who is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. The hired hand runs away because a hired hand does not care for the sheep. I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life in order to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it up again. I have received this command from my Father. — Fourth Sunday of Easter, Series C

    Brings to mind the children’s song “I just want to be a sheep – baa, baa, baa, baa – I don’t want to be a Pharisee – ‘cuz their not fair you see,” etc. :)
    Thanks for the weekly chuckle.
