The Lamb will be our Shepherd

The Lamb will be our Shepherd

Jesus said: “The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice”. One of the big questions of today for people is: “Who am I?” and there are all kinds of self-awareness courses around to help us answer that question. It is an important question and many of these courses are helpful. But it is not the most important question for us. Much more important is the question: “To whom do I belong?” Belonging is of the essence of being human and our belonging is identified by and lived out through the voices that we listen to. Some people listen to the voice of the world around which tells us to put ourselves first and they belong to the world. Others listen to the voice of Christ telling us to put others first and by so doing they belong to him. In the struggle between the two, Christ invites us to listen to his voice.
