“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.”
-John 10:27-28, 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.
-The stranger here refers to the deceiver. Jesus is the door by Whom we access eternity. He is the good shepherd Who makes us lie down in green pastures & leads us beside still waters (Ps 23:1-3). The door keeper opens for the shepherd & the sheep enter, for the Father & the Son are one as we are all one in Christ.
Thank You Father, for we rest secure in You, with the assurance that noone can snatch us from Your hand. We give You all the glory & praise. Amen
