What he said....
Where did you find that picture?
I found the picture on google images with the search term "funny Sheep". It really struck me as a depiction of how I feel right now in the process of converting.
I was looking for a heard of sheep and was going to use the name "1 flock / 1 Shepherd" because it seems to me that this is an important point from scripture in terms of all of us believers being included in the covenant and in the Body of Christ.
It seems to me that the lines that separate us are more of our imaginations and narrow-mindedness.
Nope, not true.
I imagine that our Lord sees us as his flock comprised of a bunch of sheep that are each confused in their own special way and He loves us and whistles to us and calls us by our names.
There are those who are in the flock and those who are lost.
If any one of us really "has it right" for a moment, it is probably because He is with us in that moment.
True, but hopefully he's with us all the time, and we'd have it right because we are doing what we he has told us to do.
Anyway, thank you all for the warm welcome! I sincerely mean that and look forward to learning and sharing with this group!
Yes, howdy! Sorry I took you to task already, this post just sounded too universalist, but you'll get the hang of it.
