YHWH is the Great Shepherd and Israel is His flock. Even now He collects together His lambs. Y’shua Messiah is the Good Shepherd who lays down His life for the sheep. He warns against the hired shepherd who runs away and abandons the sheep in the face of danger. True pastors, under-shepherds, have been set in place by the Chief Shepherd and must look to His example and guidance to pastor His sheep. If you are called to be a pastor you will find it to be the hardest job you will ever love. It will take everything you have to lead the Master’s sometimes cantankerous sheep, but after a lifetime poured out for the flock you will receive a crown of glory reserved especially for those who lead well, in the love of the Lord. The true shepherd faces many occupational hazards but can overcome them all by never forgetting one thing. In this episode we learn the important secret of pastoring, directly from the Master’s lips. Not a pastor? You will still be blessed by this program as you are reminded how dearly you are loved as one of the Master’s sheep!
