- Christ offers eternal life as a gift to those who follow Him. They shall never perish! "For God's gifts and His call are irrevocable." (Romans 11:29) O blessed assurance! Praise God for giving us the certainty of our salvation and eternal life! We, His sheep, are eternally safe and secure. The sheep belong to Jesus, the Good Shepherd because they are the Father's gift to Him. Since God is greater than all (He is omnipotent), no power will be able to snatch them away from His mighty hand of love and protection.
- Yahweh Rohi = The Lord My Shepherd. Jesus is both our gentle & caring Provider and our strong & fierce Protector. Our lives are in His hand. There's no better/safer place to be. We're absolutely unsnatchable; God won't allow it. Jesus loves His sheep. He laid down His life for His sheep. He takes care of His sheep. He never leaves nor forsakes His sheep. He certainly guards and keeps His sheep always. We are His now and forever! We can never be taken from His grip.

The certainty that we are loved fosters peace and eliminates stress. Sheep don't come across as stressed-out creatures. In fact, they seem almost oblivious to danger. Sheep don't worry about where their next meal is coming from, if they will have a place to sleep each night, when the next enemy or thief will attack, or even what the next day holds. When sheep are sick or in need, they simply turn to their shepherd, instinctively knowing he or she will take care of and comfort them." (~Mary Southerland)
