Today’s devotion is based on John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
What an amazing and generous act on behalf of Jesus, our shepherd. Surely we can respond in kind and with a generous heart. We can put our lives in Jesus’ loving hands and trust we will find that abundance of good things. We have been given so much; what can we give back to our community, friends, family, or church? Let’s take time to listen to the voice of our good shepherd calling us to be the people we have been created to be, working for the good of others with servant hearts that give God the glory and rejoice in knowing that we are following the good shepherd into a place of safety and peace.
Please pray with me: Jesus, my Good Shepherd, thank you for calling me and leading me through life. Help me trust that you are watching over me and guarding and protecting me. Amen.
