“I am the Good Shepherd, I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep.”┬áJohn 10: 14-15

“Who is it who knows and recognizes the sheep while they are so deeply covered with shame, suffering, death, disgrace, and scandal that they do not even know themselves? Certainly, none but the Christ. And he speaks to them these comforting words, that in spite of all the things that lead the world and our own flesh and blood astray, he will know his lambs and will not forget them or desert them.

“‘My lambs, when they are in sorrow, shame, distress, and death, will learn to know me as their faithful Savior, who has suffered like themselves, and has even sacrificed my life for them. They will trust in me and look to me for help.”┬áMartin Luther

    Jenny for a few years I’ve been reading Day by Day We Magnify You, a book of daily readings following the church year with excerpts from Luther’s sermons and writings:

    My swell cousin gave his copy to me and I love it!

    Katy isn’t that mosaic great!? It’s found over one of the doors of Immanuelskirken in Copenhagen. I meant to “source” that for curiousers like yourself. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Immanuelskirken_Copenhagen_mosaic.jpg
