John 10:11 ” I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.”

Later, John writes of Christ laying down His life for us in I John 3:16, “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us.” So because Jesus emptied Himself of all but love…we can be filled. Because His blood was shed for us…our sins can be forgiven. And because Jesus finished His’s Father’s work…our life now has worth. Because of the love of Christ, He willingly laid down His life for us on the Cross…accepting death that we might be saved from eternal punishment…atoning for our sins and redeeming us by His sacrifice.
