THE GOOD SHEPHERD OF TRUTH
Jesus is the Good Shepherd who will never lead us astray. He always guides us back to the truth, the peace, and the comfort of his resurrection. Truly a fitting thought on Confirmation Sunday, as we focus on the beginning of the walk of faith for these four mature young Christians.
To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
1 Peter 2:21-25
22 “He committed no sin,
and no deceit was found in his mouth.”[a]
23 When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. 24 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 25 For “you were like sheep going astray,”[b] but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
