Dear Watermark Church family,
"Do you love Me?... tend My sheep." John 21:17
"And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory." 1 Peter 5:4
There is simple but profound difference between the Old Testament (the Law with its temple sacrifices) and the New Testament (Grace based on the cross of Jesus Christ): Under the Law, the sheep died for the shepherds. Under grace, the shepherds die for the sheep. And Jesus the Chief Shepherd is our example of self-sacrifice.
It is no easy task to be a ‘shepherd’, or leader of God's church! If you are a leader, or desire to have a position of influence in others’ lives for Christ, trust God and His grace to use you mightily. Continue to care for the sheep and pursue humility and perseverance in providing instruction and a loving example. Look to the Chief Shepherd. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory!” (adapted from a blog by John Hopler)
