May 5, ,2019 Anglican Daily Fountain Devotional : TOPIC — Jesus: The Good Shepherd

TOPIC — Jesus: The Good Shepherd
READ: John 10:7-16 New King James Version (NKJV)

7 Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.
12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.
13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.
15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.
THE MESSAGE:
Our society today is filled with many hirelings who move about as shepherds; however, they are wolves in sheep’s clothing that devour mercilessly. They own and run Churches and prayer houses in almost every street. However, the foundations of such Churches are very occultic, diabolical and deceptive.
In order to get members, some of them perform fake miracles and do horrible things that are inimical to our faith such as burying human beings at their altars and consulting witches and wizards, magicians and native doctors. Regrettably, some Christians secretly go to them and ultimately get enslaved through false dreams, visions and prophecies that create fears, hatred, and enmity among friends and family members. Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd, the Way, the Truth, the Life and the Resurrection.
He redeemed mankind with His Blood; He knows the sheep and the sheep know Him. He came to give us life, and that, more abundantly (John10:10b). He gave His life for us and He is the only name by which we are saved (Acts 4:12). Therefore, we should not give Satan and his agents any chance to steal, kill and destroy our faith.
Jesus is our Life, chief Shepherd, Shield, Provider, Protector and Shelter; in Him we have our being and lack nothing (Psalm 23:1-2).
Prayer: Dear God, please deliver us from today’s hirelings and wolves in sheep’s clothing in Jesus’ Name.
