This article is Part 2 of this snapshot post.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:27)
Are you born a Christian? Yes, a religious one. Not according to the Bible.
The Bible clearly records all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Which means, we need to be born again (John3:3) to be a true Christian.
The verse above inspired me in a fresh way recently;
Jesus refers to His children as “MY” sheep. An endearing and personal approach while talking to His disciples. It reveals God’s love for us. The character of love in Jesus.
Hear My Voice
Faith comes by hearing the word of God. Jesus is the author of our faith. All those who love Jesus, hear His voice. Not only hear, but keep it, and He keeps them.
I Know Them
Jesus knowing us reveals the fellowship He enjoys with His children. As He is holy, we must preserve our life in holiness for Him to know us, dwell in us.
They Follow Me
Anyone who claims to love Jesus, be His sheep, hears His voice will be followers too. They will not only be known by Jesus, but will also be found following Him everyday. We are called to do His perfect will.
Hope this edifies you and enables to approach your walk with God in a fresh way.
