He is the Good Shepherd of forgiveness-
I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd gives His life for the sheep. John 10:11
As your Good Shepherd, Jesus gave His life for you. He didn’t run away from you because of your sin, or hide Himself from your need to be forgiven. He went to the cross and shed His blood to cleanse you from all your sin. He laid down His life for you because He loves you.
He is the Great Shepherd of faithfulness-
Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that Great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant. Hebrews 13:20
As your Great Shepherd, Jesus was raised from the dead and made a way for you through an everlasting covenant of grace and mercy. He now lives for you and prays for you. He leads you and feeds you. He is with you and watches over you. You do not need to fear because He will faithfully provide for you.
He is the Chief Shepherd of the future-
When the Chief Shepherd shall appear, you shall receive a crown of glory that fades not away. 1 Peter 5:4
As your Chief Shepherd, Jesus is your blessed hope. You have a bright future because He is your future. He is preparing a place for you and one day He will come for you, because He wants you to be where He is, in His Father’s house, forever.
Lord, thank You for being my Shepherd. You are good, You are great, and You rule over all. I believe in Your salvation and I receive Your forgiveness.
I know that you are good to me and are doing great things in my life.
Without You I would be a lost sheep, but because of You I am found.
I trust in You to lead me, I rely upon You to provide for me, and I look to You as my coming King. I yield my life and my future to You. Keep me in Your daily care. Amen!
