Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, is calling us to follow Him because He wants to give us eternal life. His sheep LISTEN to His voice and the FOLLOW Him. They will not go after strangers but they will run away from strangers.
Jesus is knocking at the door of every heart, He wants to come in and have meal time with us. He wants to cleanse us of all unrighteousness and He wants us to live in close relationship with Him. He wants to guide us and teach us and give us eternal life, but if we do not open the door of our heart and invite Jesus in, we will never get to know Him and we will never become sheep of his pasture.
People listen to other people, they follow their own mind and they reject Jesus, and that is why they will end up in eternal damnation. Jesus Christ Himself guides His own sheep. If we open the door of our heart He comes in and He guides us. His Spirit comes and lives in us and we must LISTEN to Him, FOLLOW Him and OBEY Him. Without Jesus we can do nothing, nobody else can give us eternal life, we need Jesus Christ Himself, the Living God, the Life Giving Spirit.
Have you opened your heart to Jesus? Have you invited Him in? Have you turned away from sin and from following your own mind, from following other people and are you LISTENING to Him? Are you FOLLOWING Jesus Christ? Do you KNOW His VOICE? His sheep LISTEN to His VOICE and they FOLLOW Him. Are you one of His sheep?
Those who are led by the Spirit of God they are the sons of God. Have you become a child of God or are you running after strangers? The Master is calling YOU and me to follow Him. Are you following the Master or are you following after strangers?
May Jesus bless you.
