“The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep. How much more can He show me His love?” Today Stacy sits down with Moms in Prayer Director of Europe and Israel, Kathrin Larsen, as we continue focusing on the I AM statements of Jesus. Listen in to hear Kathrin share just how compassionately and completely Jesus, our Shepherd, cares for us, our children and grandchildren. The beautiful truth stated in this episode will refresh and restore your soul.
Scriptures (NLT & AMP):
“I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep.” John 10:14-15
God replied to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. Say this to the people of Israel: I AM has sent me to you.” God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel: Yahweh, the God of your ancestors—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you. This is my eternal name, my name to remember for all generations.” Exodus 3:14-15
But without faith it is impossible to (walk with God and) please Him, for whoever comes (near) to God must (necessarily) believe that God exists and that He rewards those who (earnestly and diligently) seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was crushed for our wickedness (our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing); The punishment required for our well-being fell on Him, And by His stripes (wounds) we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
The LORD is my Shepherd (to feed, to guide and to shield me), I shall not want. He lets me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still and quiet waters. He refreshes and restores my soul (life). He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the (sunless) valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod (to protect) and Your staff (to guide), they comfort and console me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed and refreshed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, And I shall dwell forever [throughout all my days] in the house and in the presence of the LORD. Psalm 23
There is no fear in love (dread does not exist). But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves (the expectation of divine) punishment, so the one who is afraid (of God’s judgment) is not perfected in love (has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love). 1 John 4:18
