Our Shepherd

This is an excerpt of one of Spurgeon's Morning and Evening Devotions that just got me all choked up this can read the whole thing here
"...It is sweet to dwell upon the spiritual parallel of Laban having required all the sheep at Jacob's hand. If they were torn of beasts, Jacob must make it good; if any of them died, he must stand as surety for the whole. Was not the toil of Jesus for His Church the toil of one who was under suretiship obligations to bring every believing one safe to the hand of Him who had committed them to His charge? Look upon toiling Jacob, and you see a representation of Him of whom we read, "He shall feed His flock like a shepherd." Spurgeon's Morning and Evening Devotions- Thank you to Blue Letter Bible
