I Am Jesus – Part 2

Today, we’re going to look In John 10:11 He said, “I am the good shepherd. Let’s, say it again. “Who is Jesus?” He said, “I am the good shepherd.” And what does a good shepherd do? The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. He is the good shepherd; God is good. The gospel means “good news.” It’s good news that Jesus, the good shepherd, was willing to die for us in our place. And the fact that he said, “I’m the good shepherd” implies that there are others that are not good. In fact, he doesn’t just imply it, but in verse 1 of John, chapter 10, here’s what he said. He said, “I tell you the truth. Anyone who sneaks over the wall of the sheepfold, rather than going through the gate must surely be a thief and a robber.” Let’s be real clear: Jesus is the good shepherd. Who are we in this metaphor? We are we? The sheep. And he is here — imagine this: The love of God through his son that he desires that you have a rich and a satisfying life. Other versions say that, “His desire is that you have life to the fullest.” That’s what he wants for you.
