“For the lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes” (Rev 7:17).
Jesus Christ is the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. He is the great Shepherd who loves and lays down his life for his sheep. Revelation 7 gives us a symbolic picture of the care and protection that await Jesus’ sheep in glory. Unto eternity, Jesus will guide and tend his sheep. He will forever be in the midst of his sheep wiping away every tear. Though this sin-filled world in which we live is filled with tears, our great Shepherd will wipe away every tear from every eye from each of his precious sheep. We need not fear! We need not despair! For we belong to the King of kings – who is the gentle and perfect shepherd. Brothers and sisters, may this encourage you today!
