The Lamb of God

While reading my scriptures this morning, I came across this passage:

" And this is according to the prophecy, that they shall be brought to the knowledge of their Redeemer, and their great and true shepherd and be numbered among his sheep"

When I read that, I thought of little almost one year old "Buggie" holding and snuggling with her little lamb blankie. For she, to those of us who know and love her, is a little lamb. She is cherished with whole hearts.

As I saw and felt this image, while reading this verse I felt the desire raise up in me, " I want to be a lamb of God, loved , held and cherished". I want to be counted in the Savior's fold as one of his lambs. For if I have such a love for this little girl and her blanket, how much more perfect love must he have for me....for us.

How much more secure will we feel wrapped up in his blanket, for he is also The Lamb of God.
