Scripture
•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)
 
Reflection
•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
