He knows His sheep and we hearken to His voice.
He goes before us and carefully prepares the way; we follow Him, as He is the way, truth and life.
He is the restorer of our soul; the keeper of The Holy Spirit.
He carries us close to Him when we are broken; He mends, heals and reveals to us who we are in Him.
He laid down His life for His flock; we shall not want for eternity.
The Lord is our Good Shepherd...
I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me.
1 Corinthians 8:3
But whoever loves God is known by God.
When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice.
He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.
1 Peter 2:25
For "you were like sheep going astray," but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls."
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
