“Good Shepherd at Christmas”

True shepherd says “I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out.” Ezekiel 34:11. God wanted His sheep to be in the safest hands. For this purpose, He sent his Son Jesus Christ to be born in a stable at Bethlehem.

“Good Shepherd at Christmas”

By Fr. Theotimus Lakra, Punanamei, MAO
When we think of a shepherd and his sheep, a lovely pastoral scene may come to mind, and we see sheep feeding safely in a green pasture as their shepherd watches over them nearby. We may feel envious of the sheep, peacefully grazing without any worries.

True shepherd says “I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out.” Ezekiel 34:11. God wanted His sheep to be in the safest hands. For this purpose, He sent his Son Jesus Christ to be born in a stable at Bethlehem.

This became the symbol of God’s simplicity in the stable and of God’s care for humanity in the person of shepherds visiting the Good Shepherd – Jesus the Son of God. Let God the Shepherd remind each of us, that we are cared, we are fed, we are led, we are protected and saved.

Jesus says “I am the Good Shepherd; the good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.” John 10:11. Human life is marked by troubles and sufferings, and we can easily become anxious. Although the Lord Jesus knows all, he still wants us to follow Him and tell him everything. First Peter 5:7 tells us we can cast “all our anxiety on Him because it matters to Him concerning you.”

We can do this through prayers. Our Shepherd, the Lord Jesus Christ, isn’t far away from us. His presence in our spirit stirs a desire in us to live His Word, come to Him, walk according to Him, and rest in Him. He guides us and encourages us, caring for us according to our needs every moment. What a wonderful Shepherd we have! Come let’s adore our True Shepherd of Bethlehem.
