In this special Christmas podcast we discover the joy of God’s love! In today’s special Christmas episode, “Jesus Came to be Our Shepherd!” Pastor Matt draws our attention to the life we have in our King and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The Biblical illustration repeated often concerning our relationship with God is that of Shepherd and Sheep. God is our shepherd and we are ‘the sheep of his pasture.’ Joy is the result of staying close to the Shepherd.
This makes Christmas a special time for celebrating our joy in Christ, the shepherd of our souls. In fact, Christmas reminds us that our Shepherd cares for us – that is why He came and that is why He is coming again for us – to care for us!
Let me encourage you to open your Bible to Revelation 7 and allow Pastor Matt to comfort your heart as he teaches the congregation in Palos Verdes to look forward to rejoice in the care of our Shepherd, Jesus Christ.
