•I have made you a light to the Gentiles, that you may be an instrument of salvation to the ends of the earth. (Acts 13:47)
•Know that the LORD is God; he made us, his we are; his people, the flock he tends. (Psalm 100:3)
•For the Lamb who is in the center of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to springs of life-giving water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. (Revelations 7:17)
•My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. (John 10:27,28)
•How does the Lord shepherd you?
Essentially, what is the way through which we run? Christ said, I am the way. What is the homeland to which we are
running? Christ said: I am the truth. You run through him, you run to him, and you rest in him. We were sick and could not move. And so the physician came to the patient; the way was prepared for
the wanderers. Let us be saved by him; let us walk through him.1
