Scripture: John 10:22-30
22It was the feast of the Dedication at Jerusalem; 23 it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon. 24 So the Jews gathered round him and said to him, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly." 25 Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness to me; 26 but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; 28 and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. 30 I and the Father are one."
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
We are very much like sheep that go astray, we become easy prey to forces which can destroy us - sin, Satan, and a world in opposing to God and his people. The Lord Jesus came not only to free us from Satan's traps and the grip of sin, he came to personally lead us to the greatest of places where we can feed on his "word of life" and drink from the "living waters" of his Holy Spirit. The sheep who listen to the voice of Jesus, the good shepherd, have no fear. He leads them to the best of places - eternal peace, joy, and fellowship with God and his people. In this present life we will meet trials, difficulties, and persecution. We can face them alone or we can go after Jesus, the true shepherd, who will bring us safely through every complexity to the place of peace and safety with God. Do we listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd and heed his commands? Loving Infant Jesus, you are the Good Shepherd who secures what is best for us. We place all our hope and trust in you. Open our ears to hear your voice today and to follow your commands.
