Good Shepherd

John 10:27-28
“My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of my hand.”

We are the sheep of the Good Shepherd who cares tenderly for each sheep. Jesus says He knows each of us. That means He knows your bright side…and He knows your dark side as well. We all have both. Jesus doesn’t say you have to get rid of the dark side before He will care for you! The love of God is total gift. It is not earned. It’s grace! Eternal life is a gift. Jesus promises that no one can take you out of his hand. Doesn’t that make you want to listen for His voice…and to follow Him?

Suggested song of the day– “You’ll Lead Me” on the Listen to Your Voice album.
