Shepherds

Shepherd In Bible, we could see that many saints lived as Shepherds, Abel was a keeper of sheep (Gen 4:2), Jacob led sheep Gen(30:31), Moses led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God (Exodus 3:1), David was a shepherd (I Sam 16:11). All these saints were Shepherds also they maintained their relationship with God.

They knew their flocks very well by each one. Shepherd Jacob said that he will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me (Gen 33:14) showed his care over his flock. It is not acceptable for Jacob to burden his cattles even for a day.  He planned his journey according to his cattle’s potency and that’s the reason he said that he will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me. He understood everything about his flock. Not only that, Shepherds knew about food, protection and shelter required to their cattles and brought their Children as they are the sheep for God. As per their faith their Children too were lived with their Heavenly Shepherd (Jesus Christ).

For this reason they all shared their names as a family in book of the Generation of Jesus Christ. Do you too want to share your share your name in book of the Generation of Jesus Christ as His heir? Then renovate yourself as these Saints were and be a Shepherd to your Children. You are the shepherd for your children. Jesus Christ said “What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? (Luke 15:4)” similarly you as well try to find your child who has been lost from his/her Heavenly Shepherd and has fallen into sin or may be trapped in the bushes of Satan, or mislead their path and went along with the worldly pleasures. Whatever the situation may be, it’s your child search until you find them. And then “when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost (Luke 15:5-6)” accordingly bring him/ her to the presence of the Lord , unite him with his Heavenly Shepherd and Rejoice!

At that time, your family will become people of Christ and sheep in His Flock. (Psalm 100:4)
