2nd Sunday After Easter – Church Back Home – April 10, 2016

This Sunday’s Gospel reading is one of the most powerful, and it can be difficult to see where to focus a sermon. It includes the words of how he has “sheep which are not of this fold”, which is a good verse to inspire controversy!

But perhaps more significant is how he speaks of himself as the shepherd and others as the hireling. And please note that nowhere in the New Testament does Jesus appoint anyone else as shepherd. In fact, his command to Peter is “Feed my sheep”.

While there are some really wonderful hirelings, we need to beware of those who would claim to be shepherds.
