Thought of the Day April 28, 2021 The Shepherd who gives all

By 9:26 AM


Even as a Good Shepherd, Jesus never forgets why he became man. “I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly”. And he states clearly that because he is “a good shepherd (he) lays down his life for the sheep”. He reminds his hearers and us that he will bring salvation by freely surrendering his life. That will be the only means by which we will have life to the fullest. Laying down his life is another way of prophesizing his death by crucifixion. It is another sign of his great love for us, who, without him, would be lost sheep, wandering aimlessly, a prey to our attackers. How can we respond today to this great love-gift? How can we more fully embrace this grace of Jesus as Shepherd in our life?
