Tonight Brett made a statement in the sermon that said:
"The shepherd dying for the sheep is a very counterintuitive idea."
This really made me think...
It's true! i would be sad if ten sheep were killed in an attempt to save the shepherd, but the human life would easily take priority over the animals' life if i had to choose. It would be silly for a human to sacrifice his significant life for something so insignificant and less important.
This is exactly what God did, by all purposes, it would be much better for a human to suffer and die than God himself. It would be silly for a God to sacrifice his significant life and purpose for something so menial and insignificant as a messed up human world(much like sheep), but he DID!!!
The good shepherd truly is a noble man and cause i appreciate dearly!
