"I Lay Down My Life for the Sheep"-One Fold and One Shepherd

What wonderful promises the Lord makes to us with the analogy of sheep and the Good Shepherd. "And he gathereth his children from the four quarters of the earth; and he numbereth his sheep, and they know him; and there shall be one fold and one shepherd; and he shall feed his sheep, and in him they shall find pasture" (1 Nephi 22:25 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/1-ne/22.25

All of us are children of the Lord, and as we come to him, and are baptized by proper authority, we come into his fold as we continue to keep his commandments and rely on him.  All who come to him may find his peace.  

He also speaks to those of us working in the flock, "Feed the flock of God which is among you...And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away" ( 1 Peter 5:2-4 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/1-pet/5.2-4 )

As our Prophet Says, may we ever be found doing the work of the Lord, so that at the last day, we may be crowned with Glory and Immortality in his kingdom, and enjoy the presence of the Lord.  

All of this made possible by the Atonement of Jesus Christ, who elsewhere has said "I lay down my life for the sheep." (John 10:15 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/john/10.15) May we come to the Good Shepherd, who gave his life for you and me, sealed by his blood.  And with the Good Shepherd, we and our families can find rest and peace that "surpasseth all".
