Yahweh is our Shepherd; in Christ, we have all we will ever need (Psalm 23:1). The King of Glory is our Loving Shepherd; he carries us close to his heart and faithfully leads us in our weakness (Isaiah 40:11). Jesus Christ is our Good Shepherd; he lays down his life for each of us, and we listen to and recognize his Holy Spirit’s voice (John 10:14-16).
He is our Great Shepherd; he equips us with his Word and empowers us with his Spirit to faithfully fulfill his will and bring him greater glory (Hebrews 13:20-21). Our Man of Sorrows Messiah is our Soul Overseer; he bought us out of the Dragon’s Slave Market and delivered us by his blood into a Righteous Inheritance (1 Peter 2:24-25).
