Sheep are We

During our daily Bible reading this morning we continued our Journey to the Cross. We've been learning about Passover and how Jesus was the Lamb of God. Today, Jesus was presented as the Good Shepherd.

Mitchell was concerned. "Wait, Mom. Which is it? Is Jesus the Lamb or the Shepherd?"

"Well, actually, he's both." I responded. "He is the Good Shepherd, watching over and loving all us silly sheep. But then He became a sheep just like us, and he died as the perfect Passsover lamb, sacrificed for our sin. He is the Shepherd and the Lamb. He is God and man. He is both. He's just what we stray sheep need."

Mitchell's response?
