28 “So guard yourselves and God’s people. Feed and shepherd God’s flock—his church, purchased with his own blood—over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you as leaders. 29 I know that false teachers, like vicious wolves, will come in among you after I leave, not sparing the flock. 30 Even some men from your own group will rise up and distort the truth in order to draw a following." ~Acts 20:28-30
Before Jesus left planet earth, He warned His followers that false teachers would come in like vicious wolves. Yet, God’s flock – His church – has a Good Shepherd that cares for His sheep. For those of us purchased with His blood, we go through difficult times knowing our Good Shepherd watches over us!
14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, 15 just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep." ~John 10:14-15
