The Essential Jesus, Day 22

The Good Shepherd. As we look at day 22 of The Essential Jesus reading plan on we are reading in Jeremiah 23:1-8 and learning about shepherds. Jesus is the good Shepherd.

Still, so many other shepherd are around. We have choices all the time of who or what we will follow. So many other shepherds are out there and we see so many opportunities to follow other people or other things. Will those things care for us the way Jesus does? Will they lead us like Jesus does?

We have a Shepherd that loves us and cares for us. Jesus Christ is the good shepherd and we are to follow him. All the other false shepherds will receive their judgment at some point, but in the meantime, we are to follow the true shepherd, Jesus.
