John 10:16 I have other sheep

16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.

Jesus Christ exclaims himself about his role as a shepherd who has sheeps in this world,These sheeps listen to the shepherd.Jesus christ in his duration of ministry he taught everyone the law of God and will of God but israelites who are Gods people were not ready to accept Christ as a Shepherd.Christ loved Israelites but they never loved him back hence Christ knew that even if these people would not give ear to his teachings.There are some chosen people who are not from this group,They are the sinners who are sealed with the blood of Jesus Christ.Like the women from Samaria near the well welcoming Christ.Christ shall be welcomed by all nations and gentiles because they are redeemed by the blood of lamb.

Jesus Christ is the good shepherd who has a group of sheeps not from the genealogy of Israel but adopted by the love of God.we are the adopted sheeps who are to obey Christ because he is our shepherd.

Christ as a shepherd has laid down his life for us which no shepherd has done for us so far.We need to understand that the love that he has revealed should make us to obey him.He wishes and expects this from all of us. Amen!

Psalms 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd

A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. KJV

David is a man of God specifically speaking a man according to God's heart. David has lot of experience from his profession of herding the sheep's.he had a good sense of love of God which we sometimes don't have.He believed that God works like a shepherd .A shepherd would always take care of his sheep's but how? 
Shepherds needs to be patient,kind and devoted to the sheep.shepherds need to be patient because sheep's tend to get lost from their home if not properly overseen.They wander here and there following different signs and sheeps and finally get lost.shepherds staff is the identity that helps sheep's to go on right path.we as a sheep follow groups thinking that the group is the truth but this is the situation where Christ plays the role of saving the sheep by coming to this Earth and saving the sheeps (mankind).This search is done by a shepherd which we refer to as Jesus .
Shepherds take the sh…

Psalms 27:3 Though an army encamps around me I will not fear

3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

When a army encamps around a king or a kingdom,It shows the failure of the king or kingdom in providing proper security to the people.Army encamping leads to critical condition of insecurity for everyone.In this situation there are only two options that is 1 war 2 surrender.Even if war is done it would lead to serious destruction of humans and properties.it would lead to captivity of whatever possession the kingdom has.
When we read 2 kings 6:17 ,Elisha is surrounded by armies of king Amar which is specified as the special forces for capturing Elisha but Elisha prays to God to reveal the truth.The truth is god has already set armies of fire around Elisha who is described as a man of God.
Lastly,we need to know one thing;if you are A man of God,God has sent his first armed forces to rescue you so never fear.Amen!

Mathew 16:15-17 Who am I?

15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?A question which Peter is been asked by Jesus. How magnificent question which reveals how important Jesus is for peter.who am I?
Christ seeing the condition of Pharisees and other Israelites where everyone is confused and away from the revealation of the real Messiah are lacking faith in jesus.jesus is troubled at the this because he is meant to be accepted and received at least by his own people the Jews.They recognize him by their own mindset .They are defining GOD by their ideas which Christ didn't like because he is GOD.He is not only a prophet but the GOD.He is not only a doctor but the GOD.Jesus expected a answer from Jews that Jesus is the son of GOD who was promised by prophets to be born on this Earth for redemption.
We are in a world where GOD helps in all our fields of life but still we limit him as a doctor ,healer or a banker but this is not what Jesus is.when we see the verse 16 and 1716 And Simon Peter answered and sa…
