“Now may the God of peace, who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus—the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the everlasting covenant, equip you with everything good to do his will, working in us what is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.” (Hebrews 13:20–21 CSB)
What does is mean for Jesus to be the great Shepherd of your life? Have you considered this? What does it mean for the risen Christ to lead your daily life?
Fundamentally, this means he leads us. The risen Christ is the leader of our entire lives. How we drive, how we eat, how we respond to temptations, how we react to our children—we have a Shepherd leading us.
He is the great sealer of your eternity, but he’s more than that. He’s your Shepherd today.
From the Bible, he calls out to us. His sheep hear his voice and follow him, obey him, walk with him.
“My sheep hear my voice, I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand” (John 10:27–28 CSB).
