Topic: Jesus Is Your Good Shepherd

Joseph Prince Daily Devotional 24 August 2020 Message
When I was a young believer, I heard a preacher say, “In order to draw a straying lamb to him, a shepherd will break its legs. When it’s unable to walk, he will nurse the lamb back to health. Once it’s healthy again, the lamb will be attached to him.” That terrifying picture of a shepherd stuck in my head for years!
One day, I was able to ask a real shepherd if that story was true. Aghast, he replied, “That’s nonsense! What kind of shepherd does that?”
Sadly, there are people today who still believe this nonsense. Beloved, Jesus is our good shepherd (see John 10:11). When He is your shepherd, you will not want for anything. He is your supply of everything you need. He does not “break your legs”. Instead, He leads you to places of rest, refreshing, healing, and renewal of strength!
