Spoiler alert! You will find this PODCAST heartwarming in the extreme.
Let me set it up in this way: When Jesus declared “I AM the good shepherd,” He revealed volumes about Himself and where you and I stand with Him — today, tomorrow, and every day, no matter what.
It would not be an overstatement to suggest that contained within those five words are our theology of exactly who God is and what God is like. Most importantly, how we relate to God, and how He relates to us, in His own words, according to His own description of Himself.
And as you will soon hear, of all of the metaphors used by the biblical writers to describe God, none comes close to the beauty of this one statement: “I AM the good shepherd.”
What does that statement mean — to Jesus’ original hearers, and to us today? More than you can possibly imagine.
