Read John 10:22-30

22 It was winter, and the Festival of the Dedication of the Temple was being celebrated in Jerusalem. 23Jesus was walking in Solomon’s Porch in the Temple, 24when the people gathered round him and asked, “How long are you going to keep us in suspense? Tell us the plain truth: are you the Messiah?”
25 Jesus answered, “I have already told you, but you would not believe me. The things I do by my Father’s authority speak on my behalf; 26but you will not believe, for you are not my sheep. 27My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28I give them eternal life, and they shall never die. No one can snatch them away from me. 29What my Father has given me is greatery than everything, and no one can snatch them away from the Father’s care. 30The Father and I are one.”

Think

In Revelation we had the song: "Worthy is the lamb."  In John 21 we get referred to as sheep - and here again in John 10.  As sheep we are called to listen to Jesus' voice and to follow him.

Pray

Lord, help me to hear your call and follow you where you lead.
