The Second Shepherd

Who is the second shepherd? To answer that question, let’s turn the page of history back to Ezekiel 34. In this chapter, God rebukes the negligence and grave irresponsibility of the leaders of Israel. They have neglected to care for His people, feeding themselves instead of their flocks. God prophesies that, one day, He will gather His people and bring them back to Israel. This points to the millennial kingdom. However, in verses 23-24, we discover a puzzling prophecy. God promises, 

“And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it.” 

David, the second king of Israel, was a shepherd in his youth. As a king, he cared for his people and led them in right paths. But how could David become their shepherd when, by this time, he had lain in his grave for over three centuries? Who was this second Shepherd?

The Heart of a Servant-Leader

What is a servant-leader? Jesus taught the concept of servant leadership in Matthew 20:25-28.

“But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.

But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;

And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:

Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”

If you want to play a significant role in the kingdom of God, you must first be a servant. Servanthood is the gateway through which every great leader has passed. Jesus demonstrates to us what authentic servant-leadership looks like. How can we follow in His footsteps and be true servant-leaders? Here are 3 essential choices to make.

Will God Give You More than You Can Handle?

At the most unexpected of times, life has a habit of taking a hammer to our nice little routine. Our comfortable world is broken by heartbreak or illness or tragedy. The people of our church in Sydney Mines have faced these trials. At other times, the burden of responsibility threatens to overwhelm us with stress and fatigue. Often, people try to encourage us by saying, “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” Is this statement consistent with Scripture? Will God give you more than you can handle? Let’s discover the answer in Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians.
