How does one become a part of a group? How can one become accepted and connected? How can someone within the world grow, develop, and become something better? How can one be saved from emptiness and destruction?
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber.” (John 10:1) In a world of post-modernism, individual perception and false truths there continues to be specifics and truths that exist. There is one way into the kingdom of God and one way into right relationships with the monotheistic God of all creation. Through this relationship people can then be in a right relationship with each other.
“So Jesus again said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.”
“All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them.”
There is one way, one truth, and one Shepherd that is above all other Shepherds who mentor, raises take care of others here on earth. “I AM the good shepherd” (John 10:11). There are others that occupationally shepherd but only one true shepherd who knows all of the sheep and all those sheep know him.
What do we need in our lives? We need the ultimate Shepard. The one who can truly lead, love, and save. Humanity needs the truth and not a perception of the truth. We don’t need a s scientific theory, we need truth that withstands the test of man’s limited knowledge, abilities, vision, and purpose.
People are created to be a part of something and united to something more than the world. Humanity is created to be in relational with each other as well as with the creator. There are rich blessings to be a part of the flock of the one true creator. There is one way to be a part of the flock. There is one way to be apart of the flock. It is through the belief in the Gospel Message and the believe in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. The believe in the one creator God (YHWH) and the one true Shepherd of the world.
