The man whom humanity needs most is a shepherd

A few things are certain. We live in a universe created by a Shepherd God. The Lord is our Shepherd. Our world is redeemed by a Shepherd Savior. Our Elder Brother is a Shepherd. The man whom humanity needs most is a shepherd. Every messenger of Christ is sent to do a shepherd’s work. We are to stand at last before a Shepherd Judge. God is going to separate the good shepherds from the shepherds who are bad. The questions which every pastor must meet and answer are three: ‘Did you feed My lambs? Did you tend My sheep? Did you feed My sheep?’

Charles Jefferson, The Minister as Shepherd, pg 31
