I am…Not Self-Centered — Who I am in Jesus

” Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.” 1 Corinthians 10:24 NKJV How easy is it for us to get caught up in our own wishes, concerns, and struggles. When we did not have Christ, this was considered normal. This is what the world does. We live in a survival of the fittest, a 1st come 1st serve, an I’m out for number one (“me”) society. This is what the world teaches.

I am…Not Self-Centered — Who I am in Jesus

The Good Shepherd

John 10 V11 -18

11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”See the source image

In the story of the Good Shepherd we are reminded how Jesus looks after and cares for his flock. As human beings we would do well to remember that even in our darkest moments Jesus is still there looking over us and guiding us
