"Before children can learn to reject the voice of a stranger, they must learn to recognize the voice of the Savior."
|St. John 10|
1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
|27||My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:|
|28||and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.|
|29||My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.|
"Oh I love to hear His voice. . .saying, 'You belong to me!
You are not your own, with a price you're bought,
and you're mine eternally!'
And I love to hear Him say, 'I have saved you by my grace!'
And when I get to glory it will then be greater still for I shall see His face."
I've posted this clip before. . .but it is still true.
Teach me Lord, to follow. . .to trust your voice. . .to find peace in following you.
