"Jesus says to us, I am the Good Shepherd. And we know that his words are true. He laid down His life for us. What was threatening us? Sin and death. We could have been abandoned to those things. But our God is so good, that He sent us Jesus to defeat them. Because the relationship He has with us is one of care, protection, and love. He wants to watch over us, and see us grow. Jesus shows us loyalty; faithfulness. First to His Heavenly Father. And then to us."
