From Lost to Found

Series: At the Movies | Week 2: A Rich Life

Read John 10:10-15 in your personal Bible or at the link provided.


  1. What is Jesus’ purpose?
  2. How does He compare to a “hired hand”?
  3. Why is He the “Good Shepherd”?


When Jesus came to earth, He offered a new way of life that was unfamiliar to everyone around Him. Using a picture of livestock, He described Himself as a shepherd and His followers as sheep, to whom He promised an abundant and satisfying life. Sheep need a shepherd to guide and protect them. Because of our sin, we can’t save ourselves. We’re like lost sheep without Jesus.

The good news is we have been found. Jesus died in our place and rose again three days later, defeating sin and death and offering us what we’ll never be able to earn: eternal life. When we follow Him, He asks us to obey His new way of life. The rest of this week, we’ll read a few ways that His way differs from ours and see that what He offers is so much more than what the world offers.

So have you taken that step to follow Jesus? Do you see Him as your Good Shepherd, and do you know His voice? How can you listen for Him more this week, and who can you share this good news with?

Pray through these questions, and write down what God is prompting you to do next. Share with a friend, and take a step to apply it.


During At the Movies, each week we’ll focus on remembering what we read. If you’re new to memorizing Scripture, start by looking at one section of one verse to remember this week.

Read John 10:10 again to remember. If you want to begin by memorizing just part of it, start with this phrase:

“My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”

Memory Tip: Write an abbreviated version of the passage to keep handy, such as the first few words of the sentence, or the first letter of each word. Don’t forget to include the verse reference, John 10:10.
