The Shepherd and His Sheep - John 10 pt.3
We must remember that the Christian life is not just about our efforts to live by biblical principles but rather its about growing in our relationship with Christ, our good shepherd. We can’t divorce or separate the life principle from the life source. Principles don’t bring you comfort in the midst of pain. Principles won’t help us through the challenges of life, but our relationship with Christ will. To follow the shepherd doesn’t just mean that we try our best to do what he says, but it means we strive to know him and to trust him more and more every day.
