Today was our first day at the school ran by our partners at Mid India. We were immediately greeted with a warm welcome in a chapel service with the children. We spent the day getting to know each of the children in our group by name. Every time we would call a child by their name their face would light up. During this time I was reminded of John 10:Jesus said of a good shepherd, “The sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.” Then he told the disciples, “I am the Good Shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine”
How comforting is it that Christ knows each of us by name?
