I am the Good Shepherd, and I lay down my life for the sheep

The Savior is the Good Shepherd. He teaches of this below, and what he was and is willing to do for us.  

"I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again" (John 10:14-18).

He has given his life for us.  He had the power to save himself, but he laid his life down so that we might be saved, protected, lifted, strengthened, and redeemed. 

May we ever be grateful for that is my prayer.
