Yep. That’s us. That’s me.
Just like wondering sheep. The bible uses this example, to illustrate how we have gone astray.. this way, that way, with no real regard for dangerous or unsafe territory! Walking, maybe even running right into danger, right into sin with no ability to fend for ourselves!
But then the Lord Jesus, The ‘Good Shepard’ gives his life for the sheep and right then God lays on Him all our waywardness, all our sin, our iniquities. As lost sheep we are rescued from the penalty of sin through this selfless and love filled act from the Shepard! I am so thankful for the ‘good Shepard’… aren’t you?
