The Good Shepherd

People are like sheep, and Jesus is our shepherd.
“The Lord is my shepherd. He provides for all my needs.”
Psalm 23:1


But none of us wanted to follow the shepherd.
We all went our own way instead.

“All we, like sheep, have gone astray.”
Isaiah 53:6

The path we picked was full of danger.
“There is a way that seems right to us,
but it really just leads to death.”
Proverbs 16:25

Soon, we fell into a deep pit,
and there was no way out.

“For everybody sins.
We all fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 3:23

There we would have died without hope
if the good shepherd had not rescued us.

“For the penalty of sins is death,
but the free gift of God is eternal life in Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 6:23

He risked his own life to climb
into the pit and carry us back out.

“God shows His great love for us,
in that while we were still sinners, Jesus died for us.”
Romans 5:8

All we must do is rest in Jesus,
knowing that He can keep us safe.

“If you say with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart
that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Romans 10:9

    I really like “The Good Shepherd” tract…BUT it prints out all mixed up! Can you fix it & send it to me in order? thanks!

    • This tract is designed such that if you make a double-sided print with one of the PDF pages on front and the other on back, then you can cut the resultant print in half width-wise, stack the halves and cut that stack in half width-wise again then stable in the center, it will form a little 16-page booklet. Try it that way and let me know how it works out for you.
