Isaiah 40:11 ” He tends His flock like a shepherd; He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young.”

In John 10:11 Jesus called Himself the Good Shepherd, and in this Scripture we can see the expressions of His tender caring for the flock. During His ministry here on earth, Jesus would look at the harassed crowds and have compassion on them, for they were like scattered, helpless sheep… wandering off by themselves…becoming easy prey for the enemy…for He said, “they were without a shepherd.” (Matthew 9:36) But our Good Shepherd searches out the lost, leading and guiding them, and looking after the weak. Or as Isaiah 63:9 tells us, “In His love and mercy He redeems them; He lifts them up and carries them.”
