February 29: Passion


Scripture Lesson: John 10:11-18


Today is the birthday of Johnny Leonard Roosevelt “Pepper” Martin. Pepper Martin was a member of the St. Louis Cardinals “Gas House Gang” of the 30’s and 40’s. He was the catalyst in the Cardinals upset of the favored Philadelphia A’s in the 1931 World Series by hitting .500 and setting a record with 12 base hits in a series. Martin played the game with a passion and love for the game that was evident to all who watched him play.


In our scripture today, Jesus calls Himself the Good Shepherd. He loves his sheep and is willing to give up his own life for his sheep. The good Shepherd has a passion when it comes to caring for the sheep. He knows his sheep and his sheep know Him. Jesus passionately cares about his sheep (us) so much so He was willing to freely lay down His own life. We are indeed blessed to be loved that much and watched over that much by the Good Shepherd who loves us so!

  1. How does a shepherd care for his sheep?

  2. How does that relate to how Jesus cares for us?

  3. What does this passage say about Jesus’ love for us?

Jesus as the Good Shepherd loves us and cares for us with a passion that cost Him His life.

Hi love your songs. I love to sit and improvise and have abiilty to record on my digital piano, so I can retrieve anything that I like. This particular song, In His Keeping is very nice. Just a music theory comment: it's actually in the key of Bb but you've used key of F key signature, so the E's have to be flatted whenever they occur. Do you use a midi program to play your songs into a computer program? I use Scorewriter. I've joined on your website I'm glad I found you.
