Jun 30 I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved, and go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes to steal, to kill and to destroy. I came so they may have life in all its fullness.

I am the good shepherd who gives his life for the sheep. A hired man abandons the sheep when he sees the wolf coming to attack and scatter them. A hireling cares little for anothers sheep. I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and they know me, as the Father knows me and I know Him. I give my life for the sheep. I have other sheep not of this fold that I must bring, who also will hear my voice. Then there will be one flock, one shepherd.2 The Father loves me because I lay down my life and will take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I have authority by my Fathers command to lay it down and take it again.
