    Lord is our God, the Lord is one! And you shall
    love the Lord your God with all your heart and
    with all your soul and with all your might.

Biblical Listening

    become my salvation. The stone the builders
    rejected has become the capstone the Lord has
    done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes . . .
    . Blessed is he who comes in the name of the
    Lord.

    nor angels, nor principalities, nor things
    present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor
    height, nor depth, nor any other created thing,
    shall be able to separate us from the love of God

Responding to the Shepherd (1031-42)
  • Jesus responds by reminding his listeners of the
    evidence for the truth of His claims to divinity
    (32, 34-39)

27
C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, 55-56
  • I am here trying to prevent anyone saying the
    really foolish thing that people often say about
    Him Im ready to accept Jesus as a great moral
    teacher, but I dont accept His claim to be God.
    That is the one thing we must not say. A man
    who was merely a man and said the sort of things
    Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher.
    He would either be a lunaticon a level with the
    man who says he is a poached eggor else he would
    be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice.
    Either this man was, and is, the Son of God or
    else a madman or something worse. You can shut
    Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill
    Him as a demon or you can fall at His feet and
    call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with
    any patronising nonsense about His being a great
    human teacher. He has not left that open to us.
    He did not intend to.

28
Responding to the Shepherd (1031-42)
  • Many people came to him . . . and believed in
    Jesus (41-42)

29
Conclusion and Application
  • How do you see Jesus in your life?
  • Do you really believe He your salvation and giver
    of eternal life?
  • Do you really believe He is your true and good
    shepherd?
  • Are you really willing to submit to Him and let
    Him lead you wherever He takes you?

Deuteronomy 3015-19
  • See I have set before you today life and . . .
    death . . . to love the Lord your God, to walk
    in His ways . . . that you may live . . . . But
    if your heart turns away and you . . . are drawn
    away . . . I declare to you today that you shall
    surely perish. . . . So choose life in order
    that you may live!
