The Church as a Sheep

Sheep are not always viewed as the most intelligent animals. They're also skittish and somewhat helpless. And yet multiple times in His word God describes His people, especially His church, as sheep. At first glance, it doesn't seem like a very positive thing that God views us as helpless, defenseless animals with questionable intelligence. Is that really what God sees when He looks at us? Or is there a deeper truth we can discover when we picture ourselves as part of God's flock?

From Series: "Snapshot"

Throughout the Bible there are various metaphors and illustrations used to describe the church. These "snapshots" give us a deeper understanding of how we connect to God and to each other and what our purpose is in this world. We are going to take a closer look at some of these descriptions in scripture so that we can develop a clearer picture of our God and His relationship with His church.
