Day 43: All Sheep Count


Ann Graham Lotz paints a beautiful word picture

as she poses the question~

Have you taken the lamb off the cross and claimed Him as you own?

Have you gone beyond

just believing

What God says

and

just believing

What Jesus did on the cross

or

are you an innocent bystander who

looks upon the cross

and

looks upon Jesus,

yet never claimed Him as your own?

We see pictures of our

Shepherd

leading His sheep

But

What happens

when the roles are switched~

When

Jesus

became the lamb~

a helpless lamb

Who was sacrificed

yet

Who wants us to take Him

Who wants us to make Him

our own

so that

He becomes our

shepherd~

“I am the good shepherd; I know My sheep and My sheep know me—

just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—

and I lay down my life for the sheep. John 10:14-15

The shepherd

who knows His sheep~

You & I~

from the moment

we

not only believe

but

receive~

So that we

know

Him

and

hear

Him

in order to

Follow Him~

My sheep hear

My voice, and

I know them,

and

they follow Me.

And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish;

neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.

My Father, who has given them to Me,

is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.

I and My Father are one.” John 10:27-30

the shepherd

knows

His sheep's voice

and

the sheep

know

their shepherd's

voice.

Do you know

Do you hear

Do you follow

The One Voice of the

One Shepherd

Who

goes beyond

just counting us

but calls us by our name~

and the sheep hear His voice; and He calls his own sheep by name John 10:3

because we count!

Who Am I

Who Are you~

His Sheep

From Rags to Riches...
