Thought of the Day April 26, 2024 Easter: one shepherd, one flock

By 10:03 AM

 "I am the Good Shepherd....I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. These also I must lead, and they will hear my voice, and there will be one flock, one shepherd."  Not only does Jesus, the Shepherd, seek those of his flock who stray and bring them back, but he also seeks those who do not know him yet as their Savior. This is another indication of God's universal plan of salvation. When Jesus died, his death ransomed all who were alienated from God through sin, whether they acknowledged him or not.  Once he paid the price by the shedding of his blood, the Good Shepherd sends out other shepherds in his name to proclaim the message of salvation to the pagan world. Each of us, who have been blessed and anointed by the Holy Spirit, is commissioned to witness our faith to others, so that there will be one shepherd and one flock.
