My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. – John 10:27

A couple of thousand years ago, a child was born, a unique child, none like him was ever born of a woman. He was given the name Jesus months before he was born. But most of all, He was the Lamb of God on earth.

This lamb, as He grew, had a shepherd. It
was His Father, in heaven, who was the
Chief Shepherd for the Lamb, Jesus.

Jesus knew His voice. He heard it often. He
followed Him, obeyed His commands, and
sponsored His will.

He prayed to Him with all of His heart and with
all of His soul. From childhood and as He grew,
this Lamb knew that part of His Father’s business
was for Him to be a Shepherd of lambs, His
church, the Father would give Him.

Aaron briefly became the high priest of a golden calf (Exodus 32).

The children of Israel were also like sheep and while being led by God in the wilderness, complained and lacked trust. They took God for granted and at one time created a different image – a golden calf – to lead them. The sheep of God in the Sinai desert wanted to follow a calf instead.

Christians, through the centuries as lambs of the Shepherd, learned how to be sheep by depending on Christ.  Just as Jesus trusted His Father throughout His earthly life, so can are we to believe on our Shepherd as we travel the ups and down the hills and valleys of living in this life.

Our journey will be a wonderful one as we put our hope and confidence on Christ.
As sheep, we are to walk together in the
same direction the Shepherd leads us.
We are not to complain and separate
ourselves from the One who best knows
the path we should go.

We Chrisians are to look to the Lamb
of God who died for us so that we may
live and enter His promised land. This
Lamb of God, also our chief Shepherd, desires
His sheep to graze on green fields of grace
and to worship Him … Heart and Soul.

You are my Shepherd
Who cares for me
You lie me down
In fields of green

By quiet waters
Restore my soul
For your name’s sake
Guide me on righteous roads

You know me by name
You will lead me
With kindness and grace

Wherever you go
With all my life

Down in the valley
When darkness falls
You walk with me
I will not fear

When I’m surrounded
By my enemies
I take my seat
At a table prepared for me

Oh my Jesus
You know me by name
You will lead me
With kindness and grace
I will follow
Wherever you go
With all my life
I trust you

Surely goodness and mercy
Will follow me, follow me
Your goodness and mercy
Will follow me, follow me   (repeat)

And I will dwell in the house
Of the Lord
Forever, Amen

Oh my Jesus
You know me by name
You will lead me
With kindness and grace
I will follow
Wherever you go
With all my life
I trust you   (repeat)
