John 10:27 – 30 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.  I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will 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 the Father’s hand.  I and the Father are one.”

Observation-

Jesus is answering a question from the Jewish leaders to answer them clearly if he is indeed the Messiah.  He tells the leaders they do not believe and are not able to understand Jesus like His sheep.  Jesus knows His sheep and gives them eternal life.  No one is capable to take Jesus’ sheep from the out of the Father’s hand.  Jesus tells the leaders of His deity as he states He and the Father are one.

Application

I have to listen to Jesus, hear His voice to know him to understand what he wills for me.  Jesus knows me and everyone who believes in his name.  To be a sheep of Jesus, I must follow the Good Shepard in everything he has commanded us.  Jesus gives us eternal life when we believe and we can be assured that we are safe in the hands of the Father.  Jesus is God wrapped in flesh who came to save us so we can have a relationship with the Father.

Prayer

Father,

Thank you for your love, grace and mercy in sending Jesus so we can repent, be reconciled and have a relationship with you.  Let me be still to hear Jesus, understand he knows and loves me and follow Him.  Let me draw near to know you better so we can make you known giving you the glory!
