“I am the good shepherd”

June 23, 2015

Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.  He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.  He flees […]

“I am the door of the sheep”

June 22, 2015

Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.  All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.  I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.  The thief […]

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” (John 8:12; 9:5). Darkness represents the sinful/worldly way that stands in contrast to the way of Christ.  It is the way of death, while He is the way of […]
