“When the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive a crown of glory that will never fade away.” – I Peter 5:4
The idea of Jesus as our Shepherd is a very common theme within Christianity. In fact, I’ve already written about this idea here previously.
This time I’m going to focus on one main passage – Hebrews 13:20-21 : “Now may the God of peace Who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good, that you may do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to Whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.”
Since Jesus is our Shepherd, He directs us in the way He wants us to go, but as our sinless Savior, He also enables us to do that which we could never accomplish in our own strength. Whatever He calls us to do, He will give us what we need in order to do it. His will is accomplished in our personal daily lives through His work in our hearts and lives. His work in us accomplishes His will for us.
