OUR LIFE IN CHRIST story: Through Holy Baptism, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we are brought to faith in Jesus our Lord and Savior, who redeemed us, by His death on the cross, through His Word, and the Sacrament of Holy Communion, and in regular worship we are strengthened until that great day when we shall rise to eternal life with the King of Kings.
This Chrismon of the Shepherd’s Staff also stands for Jesus. Jesus is our good shepherd, guiding us, his sheep. A shepherd would use the hook at the end of his staff to gently pull a sheep to safety. Jesus pulls us back to Him too.
"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." John 10:11
