I JUST WANT TO BE A SHEEP!
BIBLE THOUGHT: “THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT WANT” (Psalm  23:1)
 
JESUS’ description of the work of a true Shepherd makes us want to be those sheep. He meets at the door of the sheepfold and leads out to pasture. 
 
But what is the response of a proper sheep/follower?
 
__Be listening so as to recognize the Shepherd’s voice.   A robber of a sheepfold might have an alluring voice, but it will not be the recognized voice of the Shepherd.   I want to be a faithful listener, so I can recognize that voice!
 
__Respond!  -- Meet Him there at the door, ready to follow Him anywhere!
 
__Follow Him, as HE goes ahead of the sheep.  Follow – without question or turning back---it doesn’t matter what may be there when we arrive, it doesn’t matter how long the journey is.   It’s the journey that’s primary.
Following is what is important---
Following is what matters---
Following is what He desires ---
Following is what He requires ---
Following is everything!
Father, please forgive my jumping out ahead, failing to follow You or ask for Your direction.   Remind me, Lord, how much better everything turns out when I seek Your will, and follow, because of Jesus.   Amen    Norma Privitt, Thousand Oaks, CA
