Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: 2nd Chronicles 24:1-25:28 Romans 12:1-21 Proverbs 20:8-10

“Our Faithful Shepherd”

“My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them
out of the Father’s hand.”
[John 10:29]

Christ, our Dear Lord, is such a faithful Guardian and Shepherd. He has this name above all others, with all honor, for our eternal comfort, both at the right hand of God – where He unceasingly intercedes with the Father for us, prays for us, and shows His wounds – and then here below on earth, where through His Word, Sacraments, and the power of the Holy Spirit He rules. If He were not present as our Faithful Shepherd, we would be blotted out forthwith by the Liar. But, wherever true doctrine, faith, and the use of the Sacraments still remain, that is due only to the keeping and watching of this Dear Shepherd and Guardian.
