“For this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
I myself will search for my sheep and look after them.
As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them,
so will I look after my sheep.
I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness.”
“I am the good shepherd;
I know my sheep and my sheep know me–
just as the Father knows me and I know the Father–
and I lay down my life for the sheep.”
(Ezekiel 34:11-12) (John 10:14-15)
