Gospel : John 10:22-30
Draw Me Near
“My sheep hear my voice: I know them and they follow me."
Our constant dialogue with God trains us to recognise the voice of the good shepherd. We learn to distinguish his voice from the other voices that appeal to us. There's so many noises around us, that it is easy to be lured away from him.
Jesus illustrated further his desire for all people to be drawn to him as he spoke again about the relationship between the shepherd and sheep. But there are noises we hear everyday which could lead us to distraction if we are not careful to persevere in our daily walk with him.
What lifts your spirit? What satisfies your soul? What gives you peace? Jesus’ sheep are eternally secure because the Father gave them to Jesus. “No one can take them out of the Father’s hand,” such is his love for us. Come, let us draw near to him.
