Consider the answers to this simple quiz:

“Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the __________of his pasture.” Psalm 100:3

The primary animal sacrifice for sins was a ______

The shepherd left 99 to rescue the one lost ________

Who were the first to hear of Jesus’ birth? _________

What was King David’s occupation?_______________

Jesus didn’t call Himself the Good Carpenter,  He called Himself the Good ______

Psalm 23 begins with “The Lord is my_______________”

Why a lamb? As a shepherd on Skyemoor Farm, I have to ask why God chose sheep. And how could Jesus be both a Shepherd and the Lamb of God?

When my youngest daughter Julia was a toddler, she pointed to one lambie and said, “Mommy, that one doesn’t have its price tag!” I laughed, because none of them had a “price tag” they had an ear tag, marked with a number. But it made me think….

Jesus, the perfect Lamb of God, had a huge price tag on Him. God’s Son, our Good Shepherd, came down to earth to become a sheep like us so He could take the penalty for the sins of the flock. No one could ever determine the value of saving all believers for all eternity.  There is no ear tag price to represent the cost of His sacrifice.

Jesus is………. the pricetag.
