Christ is our shepherd who took the nails in the cross for us. Great symbolism of our caretaker and the One who came to sacrifice Himself for our sins. I think we sometimes for get who Christ is. He was humble, not kingly while He was here on earth with us. He maybe reigning now, but He wants us to remember the example He came to set for us. This image certainly brings out His earthly ministry. And though He may be reigning now He still is there as our shepherd, guiding and protecting.
