Good Shepherd

The Good ShepherdGood Shepherd

   “I am the Good Shepherd.  The Good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep”  (John 10:11).

    This window has several important meanings.  It reminds us the believer is eternally secure in the Shepherd’s care:

    “I give them eternal life ... neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.  My Father, which gave them Me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of the Father’s hand.  I and my Father are one”  (John 10:27-30).

    The window is also a statement of the sacredness of all life, including the unborn:

    “He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young"  (Isaiah 40:11).  Those who would harm a child are reminded of Jesus’ words: “And whoso shall receive one such little child in My name receiveth Me.  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea”  (Matt. 18:5-6).
