“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

– John 10:11

One of the keys of Christlikeness is the willingness of an individual to lay down their lives for others. I’m not necessarily speaking about actual sacrificial death, but rather a laying down of our will, our opinions, our rights, our preferences, our selfishness for the sake of others. This is especially important for those upon whom the Lord would grant the privilege of being an “under-shepherd” within His church (i.e. pastors). Pastors are (chiefly) to be servants, laying down their lives for the sake of “the sheep.”
