God's love in the Bible: Psalm 23
The most famous Psalm in all of the Bible: "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want...." It's a perfect picture of God's love for His children, providing for their needs, keeping them safe from predators, and guiding them away from danger.

Arms in the Bible - a Christian perspective
Isaiah tells us that God is like a shepherd tending to his flock. He carries his lambs in his arms, close to his heart.

My sheep know my voice - a Christian perspective
Just as a flock of sheep recognizes the voice of their shepherd, so Christians will come to instantly recognize the voice and leading of Jesus Christ, their spiritual shepherd.

Shepherd in the Bible: Psalm 23:1
Calling God our shepherd means much more than putting us in a servant's role. No, the shepherd is responsible for all of the needs and wants of his flock. When the Psalmist declares that with the Lord as his shepherd he shall not be in want, he's saying that God is protecting and leading him in all things.

Fold in the Bible - a Christian perspective
Jesus compares himself to a shepherd, leading his flock of sheep and bringing lost souls safely into the fold.

The Shadow that Scares Us - #5798
If you don't belong to Jesus, death is a monster that should be feared. If you do belong to Him, then death becomes just a shadow because death is now your doorway to all that heaven offers you.

Sheep in the Bible: John 10:1-21
Jesus here describes himself as a shepherd, tasked with keeping his followers safe. Sheep are helpless and easily fooled creatures, but a good shepherd keeps them safe from predators and offers them sanctuary. In the same way, Jesus keeps us safe from spiritual predators when we put our trust in him.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Playing Your Part in the Christmas Story - #4161
As we count down to Christmas, I'd like to invite you into the Christmas Story. To play the part my wife was playing. You won't have to crawl around the floor saying "baaaa" - but you will be asked to be what Jesus says we are - sheep.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Five-Fingered Sheep - #4074
"The Lord is my Shepherd." Is He yours? It's possible that you know about Jesus, that you believe in Jesus, that you go to His meetings, maybe you even do things for Jesus. But somehow, you've never made Him yours. You've never made the Shepherd your Shepherd. You've never made the Savior your Savior.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Sheep Shoving - #5622
If you're trying to do any shepherding, take a lesson from the Great Shepherd and many other shepherds - gently lead them. Even though you sometimes feel like really pushing them. Leading just works so much better than pushing.
