Jesus said:“My sheep hear My voice,
and I know them, and they follow Me; 28and I give eternal life
to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out
of My hand.”John 10:27,28. Not all people are His sheep and very
few do follow Jesus. Few professing Christians are His sheep. If you
want to be His sheep and if you wish to follow Him, He will make you
into one of His sheep and He will guide you. You will hear His voice
and be able to follow Him.
Jesus does not discriminate between
sheep. He does not love some sheep more than others, He treats them
all equally. We all have a cross to bear if we wish to follow Jesus.
He did not promise anybody an easy road or a free pass. He said:”If
anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his
cross daily and follow Me.”Luke 9:23.
Jesus has not appointed some sheep as
leaders over other sheep. He is the Shepherd and He guides His own
sheep, those who follow Him. Some of His sheep follow after wolves
and other sheep, to their own downfall.
If you wish to have eternal life you
have to follow Jesus. You have to obey Him every step of the way
until the end.
Do you wish to follow Jesus? Then obey
His gospel, His words as also recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John. Repent, turn from sin. Be baptized in water for the forgiveness
of your sin. Ask Jesus to guide you. He will speak to you and give
you direction, wisdom and guidance in all things. Ask Him and He will
answer you. He will speak to you, in dreams and in visions. He will
speak to you in many ways. He will give you understanding of all
things, but you have to be serious about following Him.
Seek Jesus. Seek His way. Seek His
will, not your own. Submit yourself to Him, trust Him. Wait on Him.
Speak to Him in prayer, and expect Him. If He does not speak to you
or does not answer you, then ask Him to show you the reason.
Patiently wait on Him, and in His time He will direct you.
Become a sheep. Sheep are not
intelligent animals, unlike goats that are highly intelligent, self
willed and destructive. Sheep eat grass. Goats eat any trash, they
destroy gardens, trees, and will even eat your clothes off the
washing line. Sheep graze and are easily contained. Goats break out
of any enclosure, they climb and jump on anything. They will even
jump on top of parked cars and damage them. Many believers are like
goats, strong willed and crafty, always looking to break out, go
their own way and destroy as far as they go.
Become a sheep and follow Jesus. Jesus
will guide you all the way, but you must trust and follow Him. If you
stray, He will look for you, call you back, but if you keep on
breaking out like a goat you will be caught by the wolves. If you
follow after other lost sheep, you will also go lost. If you follow
after the wolves, the false preachers in the worldly churches, you
will be destroyed.
Follow Jesus. Ask your guidance from
Him. Stay with Him until the end ,and He will give you eternal life,
like He promised.

May Jesus bless you.
