A Daily Word - December 22, 2015

December 22

"Behold, the Lord GOD will come with might, With His arm ruling for Him. Behold, His reward is with Him And His recompense before Him. Like a shepherd He will tend His flock, In His arm He will gather the lambs And carry them in His bosom; He will gently lead the nursing ewes." - Isaiah 40:10-11

How fitting that the news about the coming of the Good Shepherd should be given first to shepherds, “abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flocks by night.” That’s what it means for shepherds to tend their sheep. They dwell with the sheep, in the field, and the Good Shepherd comes into the world where we live. Shepherds guard their sheep, and Jesus keeps watch over His people continuously. Shepherds do this even in the night, so that no predators creep under the darkness. Jesus tends the “sheep of His pasture” in the deep dark, and the destroyer cannot steal us away when our world turns to night.
