My friend Kay sent me this clip of sheep being herded to the fold. It appears to have been taken by a drone, or some type of mechanism which portrays the scene from above. It’s incredibly moving. Please watch the short clip and see what thoughts come to your mind. The below comment is what came to hers. It’s shared with permission-
It immediately reminded me about our beloved Shepherd the Lord Jesus and His ushering His entire flock onward from this present church age into His eternal sheepfold!
Perhaps we could view the attending sheepdogs as representative of the Apostles and those countless saints of God who through the ages with unwavering faces set like flint, preached the exacting Word of the Gospel of Salvation by which we were saved!
How serendipitous that in this video we see that the gate by which the sheep enter is also narrow! This to me for us, is so very lovely a visual allegory to Luke 13:22-25 and Matthew 7:13-14!!
I believe that our “ushering” into that eternal sheepfold will be the millisecond we hear our beloved Saviour say to us His bride, “Come Up!” And so we will be with Him forever!!
