In Green Pastures is a painting created by Yongsung Kim a world renowned christian artist. This painting depicts Jesus Christ with one of His lost sheep under a beautiful tree.
In many ways we have each been this lost sheep. In many ways we have each strayed from the covenant path and lost our way from the road of discipleship. But because our Savior's atonement is infinite and His love is unfathomable, He is able to save us time and time again.
Here are verses in John 10:11-18 that depict Jesus Christ as the Good Shepherd.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
