In our worship gatherings on Sunday, we continued in our summer series “I AM: Facing Uncertain times with an ever-present God.” Just one more Sunday until our church begins our 2020 All Church Focus!
On Sunday, we explored the second of the two direct “I AM” statements in John, chapter 10. Twice, Jesus proclaims:
John 10:11,14 “I am the good shepherd.”
This powerful metaphor was familiar to His Jewish audience. It communicated what kind of a leader He was. Jesus was a leader with…
- quality and integrity (John 10:11)
- who was sacrificial and loving (John 10:11-13)
- a relational leader (John 10:14-15)
- a Unifier (John 10:16)
- full of undeniable power (John 10:17-21)
So, what’s this mean for us today? How can we put these ideas into action?
