“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 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.” John 10: 14-16
I’ve been reflecting on how thankful I am for my adoption into God’s family. I am one of His own; one he laid down his life for, one with him and one with his flock. Thank God that left the ninety-nine and went in search of the one. Thank God that he went for the other sheep and expanded his family to include me. Thank God.
