The Big question of the day: What kind of Sheep are you?
John 10:27 Jesus says, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me."
When Jesus says, "My Sheep" this involves ownership or what we call today "Lordship". Is Jesus Lord over yours and my life?
If He is Lord then our ears have been opened and we hear His voice call our name. We are intimately known and cared for by Him. Even this very hour scripture reveals that our Shepherd lives to make intercession for us as He sits at the right hand of God the Father.(Hebrews 7:25)
If Jesus is Lord then we are continually setting our hearts and minds to follow him. We cannot follow Jesus if we have not first been born of water and Spirit.(John 3:5) We cannot follow Him if we aren't surrendered to the Holy Spirit's leading today and set on discovering His commands for us through His word.
Life can get busy and even chaotic as we deal with issues in the family or at work. Maybe the issues we deal with are things going on inside of us that no one can see but the Lord.
If Jesus is our Shepherd and we are His sheep then may we live to hear His voice speak into our lives and issues so that He can lead us and we are following Him! He knows the way because He is the Way so may we put our trust in Him today!
