• He Removes our shame
The good Shepherd is also adept at removing our shame. Please recall the wedding in Cana of Galilee (John 2:1-11), which was attended by Jesus, His disciples and His mother among others. Soon, the celebrants ran out of wine and everlasting shame was looming ahead but Jesus, the good shepherd, was on hand to bail them out by removing their shame. So what did He do? Well, He simply turned ordinary water into wine of the finest caliber which was subsequently served to the guests at the party. My dear friend, is there anything constituting shame in your life at present? Or better put, is there any issue that you dare not discuss with anyone because of the shame that it carries? If your answer is yes, then you need to approach this same Jesus, the good shepherd, today and He will remove it completely (John 8:36) to the glory of God and to the shame of the Devil. Amen.
