The Missing Servants of Christ

"Where are the innocent servants of Christ who bring Christ's sheep nothing but the Lord's voice and word, who are zealous to seek all the Lord's lost sheep, to bring back those which have gone astray, to heal the injured, to strengthen the weak, to guard the strong, and feed them aright? And also to shut out from the congregation of Christ all those who do not wish to listen to the Lord's word and mend their ways?"

 (Martin Bucer 1491-1551)

Here I am Lord! Gregg Metcalf, Servant/Shepherd

Lovely way of putting this over,

I have a "Lost Sheep", but will wait patiently until he's ready to return.

Have a pleasant week-end Gregg.

"Feed my lambs ... Shepherd my sheep ... Feed my sheep".

Very testing quotation.

These innocent servants of Christ are far and few in between nowadays :-(

A sheperd will leave his hole flok to go and get the lost sheep and bring it home. is that not what the true sheperd teaches?
