“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).
