The Good Shepherd – black colored pencil, July 2010

Jesus Christ is the Redeemer of the world, the Holy One of Israel, the Son of God.  As I sketched this picture during a meeting (oops. sorry!) shortly after I began my mission, I couldn’t help but reflect upon the magnificent life of our Savior, the Good Shepherd.  We really are his sheep, and he will protect us and guide us if we follow his voice. No one is left out of the fold – he loves us all equally.  I think of how he told the people in Jerusalem to “come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28), and then how he similarly told the people in the ancient Americas that “if ye will come unto me ye shall have eternal life. Behold, mine arm of mercy is extended towards you, and whosoever will come, him will I receive” (3 Nephi 9:14).  I know that these people recorded in the Book of Mormon were Christ’s sheep as well, and that he is mindful of all his people (see John 10:16 and Alma 26:37).  The Good Shepherd loves us all and will never leave us. Ever.

About sisterweber

I am currently a Mormon missionary serving in western New York for The Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-Day Saints! Let me tell you how strange I am currently - I don't watch tv or any form of entertainment; I left behind my family, home, school, and art I love so so much; I'm working 6 days a week, 14 hours a day to bring people unto Christ; I'm not getting paid (I'm actually paying); and I CHOSE to do it! The reason why? I know this is the most important thing I could ever do. I know that there is nothing in all the world that can bring people greater happiness than the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness. This message I'm sharing with people is unique and true. God loves all of us so much that He has restored the church Jesus Christ set up onto the earth again, and all people have a right to know. Everyone has a right to be as happy as I am.
