Good Friday...

Friday, April 6, 2012

Therefore Jesus said again, I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep.
 All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, 
but the sheep did not listen to them.
I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.
 He will come in and go out, and find pasture.
 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;

I have come that they may have life, 
and have it to the full.

I am the good shepherd.

The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns 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. 
The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.

I am the good shepherd; 
I know my sheep and my sheep know me just as the Father knows me
 and I know the Father—

and I lay down my life for the sheep.

John 10:7-11

Thank you Lord.
