Voices…

John 10:27-30 (ESV)

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 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. 30 I and the Father are one.”

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”

Sometimes I think we don’t give enough attention to what we hear throughout the course of our day. 

If Christ is speaking to us, might there be other voices trying to influence our decisions and behavior? 

Scripture tells us to meditate on His Word both day and night. Might this be so we can better hear the voice of Jesus and be able to dismiss those other voices?

How about the promises that follow? 

“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.”

The promise of eternal life. He tells us that our Father is greater than all and that no one is able to snatch us out of His hand. He tells us this twice!  

Might there be someone out there telling us different? 

So we doubt?  

So we don’t live in confidence about who we are and who we belong to!  How about our God given potential!

And then we get a picture of 2 parts of our triune God. 

“I and the Father are one.”

Clean out your ears and be careful what your listening to. It could be keeping you from the greatness and happiness our Father has for you.
