“No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord.” John 10:18a (NIV)
Do you sometimes wonder if God really cares about the problems you encounter? These words remind us that He does care. If you have believed in this Jesus you are one of His sheep. Jesus gave His life to bring you into the fold. It is wonderful to know that He offered Himself for us. That is what He said about the way He lay down his life for us, His sheep, cannot we trust Him to do what is best for us every day? The love that inspired Him to willingly die for us continues to work in our behalf today.
