“My sheep hear My voice and I know them and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.” John 10:27-29
I ask you today, my fellow brothers and sisters, how lost were you before Jesus rescued you? The answer, just in case you’ve forgotten, is absolutely lost!
You and I were dead in our sins until the Holy Spirit awakened us. We were completely separated from God and heaven. But, listen carefully to what Jesus says, “My sheep hear My voice and I know them and they follow Me.” Jesus, by His grace, has called us and we, being His sheep, are to follow Him.
I rejoice that He is our Shepherd and we are His sheep, for sheep are completely dependent upon the protection and security of the shepherd from birth until death.
Christians, don’t let anyone trouble you with words like, “Now that you are saved, you must do all that you can to keep yourself saved.” Such thinking doesn’t even make sense according to the gospel of grace and the work of Christ. Those who are in Christ know it. They grow under His care and blossom with confidence, becoming more eager to share His love with others.
Rejoice my brothers and sisters! It’s called eternal life and it’s what He gives to all those who call upon Him in faith.
Now, Go Serve Your King,
Pastor Joe Mendez
