WHAT A REAL SHEPHERD IS

June 2

In this section we learn what a real shepherd is and how he behaves towards his sheep. This is a picture or type of the Pastor/Leader and how he treats his people that he is supposed to be leading towards Godliness.  Jesus tells these people to listen up what He is about to say is real important. This section is a continuation of the story of the blind man being put out of the Synagogue by the Pharisees (false shepherds) and being found by Jesus (The True Shepherd). It also shows how He cares for us and will even go out of His way at the expense of His own life to see us saved eternally. Jesus tells it like it is in this section as He always does, but here He begins to really hit the Pharisees hard by telling them what had been prophesied in Ezekiel Chapter 34.  In that section of Scripture. it speaks of the Pharisees being false shepherds and those who take care of themselves at the expense of the sheep (the people).  Finally, it speaks of the True Shepherd (Jesus Christ) coming to love, feed, and care for the people of God.  Are we following the True Shepherd who is Jesus Christ?  If not we are lost forever and headed for hell.

John 10:1-2 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.  2 “But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
