Jesus’ sheep hear His voice. They understand Him because they know Him. Not only do believers know Jesus, but He also knows them. To be known by Jesus is to be held securely not by our own power, but by the mighty power of God’s grace. No one can snatch believers from Jesus’ hand or from the Father’s hand as they are one. They are both divine, acting with power and purpose that human forces cannot emulate or overcome. It is God’s power that saves His sheep and it will be God’s power that will keep His sheep.
Questions for further thought:
1. Do I truly know that I am one of His sheep? Why or why not?
2. To what can I refer to help me answer question #1?
Challenge: Take some time to reflect on the time when you truly put your trust and faith in Jesus Christ and Him alone to save you. If you have not done that, what is stopping you from doing it today?
