Jesus is the Good Shepherd because he looks after his sheep, one and all. We are all part of the flock when we follow Jesus and like a good Shepherd, he finds us when we are lost, he carries us when we cannot walk, he tends to our every need. He leads in in green pastures where we can be nurished and nurtured. Follow the shepherd for he leads us in paths of righteousness.
"And in that region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. And the Angel said to them, "be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will come to all the people; for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger." And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly host praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased!"
♫♫Away in a manger, no crib for a bed.
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head.
The stars in the sky look down where he lay,
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.♫♫
My heart to yours...
