One of the misconceptions that sometime arise is that God is obligated to do something for someone or someones. But the truth of the matter is that God doeses what he pleases and really reserves the right to do anything for anyone. And sometime we want to turn God into servant of slave of man where he is bound under contract or agreement to perform certain duties. As Christ head of the church and as man head of his house, God calls the shots in heaven and on earth...
["...11I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

20And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?
21Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?...]
In this passage Jesus identifies himself as the good shepperd and not the good servant. As high as a shepperd is to his sheep, man to animal difference that how far, we are to God. Though the fact God cares of about us and Jesus remind us of the grace we speak of,
"...17Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father..."
He said, no man, no creation on earth, takes the grace of God upon himself on his own accord, but his said, I lay it down of myself, with Gods' free will and pleasure, with Power to give and pick it up again. And like we said we don't realize how free is God to his own decision and we should not put him in a box where man exacts God of what he is expected to do for man, who of his own free will turned away from him, Glorious.
