John 10:12-16New Living Translation (NLT)
12 A hired hand will run when he sees a wolf coming. He will abandon the sheep because they don’t belong to him and he isn’t their shepherd. And so the wolf attacks them and scatters the flock. 13 The hired hand runs away because he’s working only for the money and doesn’t really care about the sheep.
14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, 15 just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep, too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock with one shepherd.
Dear Father, Jesus is the caring Shepherd. He is the Good Shepherd. He knows me. I belong to Jesus. The Father knows Jesus, and Jesus knows the Father. Jesus sacrificed his life for me. I am in one of his sheepfolds. I hear your voice, Lord. Thank you for being my Shepherd. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
