The Word On Monday: Good Shepherd πŸ

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

John 10:11

This verse my daughter and I especially wanted to share today following Easter Sunday.

The empty tomb at Easter gives my soul so much joy to focus on how He faithfully carried out His mission of redemption for His people.

I feel so profoundly and completely humbled by the fact that Jesus gave HIS LIFE for me. Me. A sinner. Broken. Yet He loved me so much to die in my place so I can live.

The joyful remembrance of the empty tomb highlights the awesome power of God over death and the assurance of eternal life for those who love God.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Were you able to attend church, or see family? The Holy Spirit reminded me of the joyful hymn AN CAN IT BE when I woke up yesterday. I hadn’t sung it in years but remember singing it with my family as a child. The words, “amazing love, how can it be, that thou my God shouldst die for me?” echoed in my mind as I watched the sun come up through the window!! I hope you have a moment to listen.

Love always,

Viv πŸ€—

  1. Vivian, thanks for reminding all of us that Christ is the Good Shepherd. I am getting back to my writing after taking time to be with family in worship and time together. May you and your family feel the confirming grace of our one and only Shepherd!

  2. These are the days that Jesus took His disciples and began to teach and instruct them on how He wanted His church to be ran. He revealed Himself in a very mighty way to them during this time.

    β€œThis is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true. And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.” John‬ ‭21:24-25‬ ‭KJV‬‬
