Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/24/10

This week’s scripture is from John:

“He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice.”

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”        (John 10:3b-4,10)

It is our Lord Jesus Christ who calls us; He calls each of us by name. Notice He does not drive us out from behind; He leads us out. We are not to be in front; we are to listen to His voice and then follow Him. It is when we lose sight of Him that we get lost or lose the path or stubble into danger. We need to keep our eyes on Jesus. If we are not in the Lord’s safe keeping, then we are susceptible to the enemy who comes but to destroy. Thank God we have Jesus, our Savior, who came to give us life and life abundant.

May the Lord bless you to hear His voice, to follow Him, and to live life in His fullness.
