Our Shepherd

1 Peter 2:24-25 KJV Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. [25] For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
 
What a great reminder for us about our Savior. He bore our sins in His own body. He dod not just bear some of our sins or even most of our sins, He bore all of our sins in His body on the cross. Because He did that for us, we can live a righteous life no longer under the penalty of sin. We were as sheep scattered without a shepherd. Now we have a Shepherd that cares for our souls and watches out for us at all times. We should live life witha heart of gratitude that our problem of sin has been completely dealt with by His death on the cross.
