“The Good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep.” Oh, wonderful gift! not promised, but given; not to friends, but to enemies. Given without condition, without reserve, without return. Himself unknown and unloved, His gift unsought and unasked, He gave His life for thee a more than royal bounty..... Oh, grandeur of love! “I lay down My life for the sheep!” And we for whom He gave it have held back, and hesitated to give our lives, not even for Him (He has not asked us to do that), but to Him!
