SHEPHERD, WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR SHEEP?

July 19, 2021

Morning: Jeremiah 23:4

Noon: Psalms 85

Evening: Acts 20:28


Tell me Pastor, do you know your sheep? If not, I invite you to start to get to know them because, although it may be complicated, you must bear in mind that you will be held accountable before God for the lives of those whom you ignore today, when you really should be showing attention. Being a pastor is not a position, it is a function and as such implies the need for actions and procedures.


Remember that the sheep see the shepherd as the one who will provide for their daily food, without missing anything, at least nothing that is within your reach. So, tend to your sheep and when you cannot, cry out to the one who has promised to equip you with everything you need for the benefit of your flock, which is actually His.


My fellow pastor, what do you know about your sheep? How are they doing? What are their struggles? What are their weaknesses? What do they like? If you do not know, do your best to figure it out, because Christ will ask you, and if you have not shepherded them efficiently and with love, you will have your eternal punishment. But if God sees true responsibility in you and your pastoral work, then He will reward you for being faithful towards what He entrusted to you.



He will ask you questions that you’ll only be able to answer if you know your sheep.

Noon Psalm 85

LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land:

Thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

2Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people,

Thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

3Thou hast taken away all thy wrath:

Thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.


4Turn us, O God of our salvation,

And cause thine anger toward us to cease.

5Wilt thou be angry with us for ever?

Wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?

6Wilt thou not revive us again:

That thy people may rejoice in thee?

7Shew us thy mercy, O LORD,

And grant us thy salvation.


8I will hear what God the LORD will speak:

For he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: But let them not turn again to folly.

9Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him;

That glory may dwell in our land.


10Mercy and truth are met together;

Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11Truth shall spring out of the earth;

And righteousness shall look down from heaven.


12Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good;

And our land shall yield her increase.

13Righteousness shall go before him;

And shall set us in the way of his steps.
