Do you know the voice of the good shepherd who gave His life for the sheep? While in Uganda, our team played a game with the students that helped illustrate this concept. Those who were blindfolded had to find the leader of their group by listening to a teammate (their good shepherd) who ran next to them, helping them find the way. Then we added in a distractor whose sole job was to mislead the blindfolded person and lead them astray. They would do this by speaking louder and more convincingly than the “good shepherd”. This Easter, be ready to add knowledge to your faith and don’t allow distracting worries prevent you from thinking about God’s truth. Allow yourself instead to hear the voice of Jesus speaking to your heart. -Teresa #dontbeworriedaboutanything #prayabouteverything
John 10: 11-15 (ESV)
11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
12 He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.
13 He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me,
15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. http://esv.to/John10.11-15
