"I am the Good Shepherd. I know mine and mine know me".
In today's Gospel Jesus continues to tell us that he is the Shepherd of the sheep.
The sheep hear his voice, "as the shepherd calls his own sheep by name and leads them out."
How do I feel when Jesus calls me by name? How do I respond?
Jesus tells us, "I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly."I feel both gratitude and joy knowing that Jesus is our Good Shepherd. He cares for us, loves us, calls us by name, and leads us so that we may have life and have it abundantly.
