Jesus is our Shepherd and He is not driving, but leading us. He shepherds us with his voice, calling us by name. His sheep only hear his voice and He is leading us into life and life more abundantly by love, from faith to faith, in rest and great peace. We need to keep our focus on our leader and not be distracted to enable us to run our race. Our labour is to stay in faith, working through love. If I walk in love, I walk in God’s footsteps. Walking as servants opens the door to walk as ministers. Following Him, glory, goodness and mercy will be our rearguard. We will be like a well-watered garden with a spring that never fails. We need to listen to the Holy Spirit our leader and follow him, instead of doing things instinctively.
