Now to a Jewish person, any time the word “sacrifice” was used, they would’ve immediately thought about the lambs that were sacrificed at the temple. Those sheep were raised up, they were fed, taken care of and protected, for the sole purpose of the sacrifice on the alter of God. That’s what a shepherd did. So in a sense, my job as a pastor is to lead you to offer yourselves up to Him in total devotion and service. That kind of puts a new twist on being the Lord’s flock doesn’t it?
