How do we learn to trust in someone we can’t see who loves us beyond our imagination?
When Jesus called himself the gate, I assumed he led to greener pastures and smoother sailing. When he referred to thieves and robbers, I assumed he was in the business of giving—what I wanted. When he mentioned saving, I thought he’d rescue me from hard times. I had a sharply defined idea of what a good shepherd looked like.
I was wrong. He is so much more.
