The Shepherd’s Sacrifice

The outline mentioned in the message:

Jesus pointed out five special ministries that he performs as the Good Shepherd.

  1. He is the DOOR for the Sheep (John 10:7-10).
  2. He DIES for the sheep (John 10:11–13).
  3. He DISCERNS (knows) his sheep (John 10:14–15).
  4. He DELIVERS (brings) other sheep into the flock (John 10:16).
  5. He has DOMINION over (takes up) His life (John 10:17–18).
  6. He causes DIVISION among the leaders (John 10:19-21).

Next Steps:

  1. Do you know the Shepherd’s voice? (If not, let’s talk about it).
  2. What was the turning point for you, when you first heard and responded to God’s voice?
  3. How do you discern the voice of God in the midst of so many competing voices in the world?
  4. In what ways can you be more attentive to God’s voice?
  5. In what ways can you live your life sacrificially?
  6. What emotion can you describe that indicates how you feel about God caring for you as this Good Shepherd?
  7. If she is still with us, when do you plan on calling your mom today?
