Consider Jesus: Bishop

Let us continue to “consider Jesus.” (Heb. 3:1) 

1 Pet. 2:25 “For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.” (Bishop – KJV, ASV, Overseer – NKJV)

Jesus is our great bishop – guardian, overseer, watchman and supervisor.  We need someone to watch out for us and watch over us.  Consider the condition that people are in before they find the One who can guide them in the right way. “And seeing the multitudes, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and downcast like sheep without a shepherd.” (Matt. 9:36)  This is proof of the truth that Jeremiah spoke, “I know, O LORD, that a man’s way is not in himself; Nor is it in a man who walks to direct his steps.” (Jer. 10:23)

To meet our needs Jesus shepherds and guides us for the protection of our souls.  He makes sure our soul has all its needs taken care of and is not led astray by evil or error.  So long as we submit to His leadership we are safe and secure.
