WE ARE LIKE SHEEP




As humans we are naturally inclined to scatter, to wander about
in our own way. Christ brings us together into Him, as a shepherd
with his sheep. He took the punishment for our selfish and sinful
ways, and made it as if we had never strayed. Jesus Christ was
innocent but became sin for us, so that we, as sinners, would be
declared innocent before God.

Heavenly Father, there is no way we can repay the sacrifice you
made for us. We can only give our lives to you, and as we do, we
ask that you make us more like you. In Jesus' name.

Read Isaiah 53:6

"We all like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. (NIV)

"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his
own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." (KJV)
