BY She Reads Truth

Since 2012, She Reads Truth has maintained a singular mission: to be women in the Word of God every day. Ten years later, our community includes “Shes” from across the globe, but our mission hasn’t changed.

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at She Reads Truth. As we spend time as a community reading This Is The Church, we encourage you to start by reading the daily Scripture on your  own. Then join us here to engage and encourage one another as we respond to what we’ve read. Each day for this series, we’ll include a brief summary of the reading along with a prompt for conversation.

Jesus’s love for the Church is expressed through the imagery of a perfect shepherd and his flock. Unlike the negligent shepherds who previously led God’s people, Jesus delights to search for, gather, and tend to His flock, even laying down His life for His sheep.

Discussion Question: How does the image of Jesus as the perfect shepherd caring for His flock, the Church, shape your understanding of the Church? 

Take time to reflect on your Scripture reading and today’s question. Share what you are learning with others in the community in the comments.

    The first reading from Ezekiel really spoke to me about how we shouldn’t just be consumers of God, we should be shepherds caring for a flock that is lost and doesn’t know him! It’s all about being intentional with our actions and our meetings!

    For me after reading this it makes me want to be more intentional on paying attention to how my church leaders lead and live. Are they leading like the hired hand or are they trying to be like Christ and be a good shepherd. I also have been in the faith for a few years and need to hold myself accountable on my attitude and how I carry myself when I’m volunteering or representing Christ and His Church. Am I doing it to be like Christ or am I begrudgingly doing the task.
