OUR FATHER WHO SENT US THE GOOD SHEPHERD
John chapter 10 verse 3 says this;
The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
In this verse, Jesus, speaking of the good shepherd whom he identified as Himself, has the gate opened for him by the gatekeeper.
The gatekeeper in this verse is the Holy Spirit who is the seal and the link between Jesus the shepherd and his followers. The words of Jesus are transmitted to his people by the work of the Holy Spirit.
When the good shepherd speaks, the sheep listen to His voice. He knows each one of His followers personally and He calls them by their own name when He leads them out to pasture.
Bless the Lord who is our good shepherd. As Psalm 23, written from the point of view of the sheep says;
The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.
