As the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ died for the sheep. As the Great Shepherd, He lives for the sheep
in heaven today, working on their behalf. As the Chief Shepherd, He will come for the sheep at His
return. Our Shepherd cares for His own in the past, present, and future.
He is the same yesterday, today, and forever! Our Great High Priest is also our Great Shepherd. When
He was on earth, He worked for us when He completed the great work of redemption. Now that He is
in heaven, He is working in us, to mature us in His will and bring us to a place of spiritual perfection.
We will never reach that place until He returns, but while we are waiting, we are told to continue to
Scripture for today: “May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought
back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good
for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be
glory forever and ever. Amen” (Hebrews 13:20-21, NIV).
Also read: Psalm 23; 1 Peter 5:4; John 10:11; 1 John 2:28-3:3.
Action assignment: Today’s Scripture reading is a benediction. Read the verse again as a personal
prayer for you today. Thank God for all He has provided you.
