Text: John 10 (Deuteronomy 1-2)
What rich text we have today in John 10! Jesus characterizes Himself as a good shepherd – we are His sheep. Hear these words of Jesus:
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” (John 10:27)
Three powerful truths. to think about here:
- Because we are His sheep, we are able to hear Jesus’ voice. When we pray and when we read the Word of God, the Lord is speaking directly to us. Do you hear Him?
- He knows us. Jesus knows us all intimately. He knows our hearts, our thoughts, our strengths and weaknesses. He commands our destiny. And, He loves us anyway. That’s great news!
- We follow Him. If we are indeed His possession, His sheep, then we will be obedient to follow Him. It is a good thing to commit this day and every day to walk closely in His steps. Perhaps you need to pray and tell Him that right now.
in Him, Mike
