Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd” (John 10:11, 14). The relationship of believers with Jesus Christ is that of sheep to a shepherd. The Lord is our shepherd; we are his flock. But what does that mean?
In John 10, Christ spells out what it means for him to be our shepherd and for us to be his sheep in seven wonderful ways….. https://unlockingthebible.org/2018/05/seven-ways-christ-is-the-good-shepherd/
And we pray:
O Jehovah my Shepherd, You are the Good Shepherd whoever cares for His sheep. Help me to follow and trust You not only in the green pastures but also through the valley of the shadow of death. No other shepherd can compare to You, Lord, and we Your sheep flee from the voice of strangers, for we know only the voice of our true Shepherd.
