I was recently introduced to the teaching of Efrem Smith, one of the pastors at Bayside Church in Sacramento, California. He seems to be one of those guys that always says something you just want to write down! When the vlog we’re passing on to you today made its way into my in-box, I loved his message. In just three minutes, Efrem tackles two of Jesus’ “I am” statements in John 10 – I am the gate and I am the Good Shepherd.” Check out how he reminds us to “live life for the long haul” and keep the new from becoming old. Hint: One of the keys is sacrifice … just like a shepherd does for the sheep.. Enjoy!!
