The author of this treatise has endeavored to put within brief compass the essential facts pertaining to the history and use of the word, and he thinks he has conclusively shown that it affords no support whatever to the erroneous doctrine.
As the Father knoweth Me, even so know I the Father: He had likened the Spirit's influence to the cool, refreshing water.
He had represented Himself as the light, the source of life and gladness to nature and to man. Now in a beautiful pastoral picture He represents His relation to those that believe on Him.
No picture was more familiar to His hearers than this, and Christ's words linked it forever with Himself. Never could the disciples look on the shepherds tending their flocks without recalling the Saviour's lesson. They would see Christ in each faithful shepherd. They would see themselves in each helpless and dependent flock.
He shall feed His flock like a shepherd: He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom. And the Holy Spirit through Ezekiel had declared: The Pharisees had just driven one from the fold, because he dared to bear witness to the power of Christ.
They had cut off a soul whom the True Shepherd was drawing to Himself. In this they had shown themselves ignorant of the work committed to them, and unworthy of their trust as shepherds of the flock.
Jesus now set before them the contrast between them and the Good Shepherd, and He pointed to Himself as the real keeper of the Lord's flock.
Before doing this, however, He speaks of Himself under another figure. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Through this door all His children, from the earliest times, have found entrance. Many have come presenting other objects for the faith of the world; ceremonies and systems have been devised by which men hope to receive justification and peace with God, and thus find entrance to His fold.
But the only door is Christ, and all who have interposed something to take the place of Christ, all who have tried to enter the fold in some other way, are thieves and robbers.
They had climbed into the fold by another way than Christ, and they were not fulfilling the work of the true shepherd.COR IESU, DESIDÉRIUM CÓLLIUM ÆTERNÓRUM, MISERÉRE NOBIS.
