Jesus said, “My sheep listen to my voice, I know them, and they follow me.”
This verse, is one of the famous in the Bible. It is even memorized by many of us and, so myself. But my today’s devotion is different, it captivates my spirit even more. It strucks my heart. I stand still and in awe at the moment of reading this passage in my Bible. I continued reading, and it was supported with the following passage in…
” I gave them ETERNAL LIFE and they shall NEVER perish. NO ONE can snatch them out of my hand.”
What a wonderful promise of our Salvation! Hallelujah!
John 3:16 says,
“For God so loved the world that He gave His Only begotten Son, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. ”
This is a promise of God! The only required action that we need to do is to believe— genuinely!
We have to Believe of He is who He is claiming to be…
John 20:31 NKJV
but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
And we have to Believe in what He did on the cross…
I Corinthians 15:3-4
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,
… that when we Believe, His Power is at work in us…
Romans 1:16 NKJV
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
As believers and followers of Christ, we know our Shepherd. We know His voice and we will follow Him.
In today’s life, we all know that it was not as easy as it has been said than done. We need to contnually commune with our Shepherd, through Prayer, Devotion and Focusing our attention to Him alone. So, that His voice will be vivid and tangible in our ears and hearts that we will clearly hear His voice. Clear for us to follow His Godly wisdom and decide in our lives.
The main fact of this is, If we know our Shepherd; we know who is our Salvation; That we genuinely accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. Our eternal life is our future! No ONE can snatch our Salvation from His hand. Only to Jesus.
John 14:6 says,
“He is the Only way, The Truth and The Life, No one can come to the Father except through Jesus”
This is the assurance Jesus is giving to us. He loves us. He is offering us a Relationship that leads to eternal life. Acts 16:31 says, So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” As we understand what Believe means at the former, and you want to have a relationship with Him, I will lead you in a short prayer of Salvation. This payer is not a magic, but what makes it powerful is when you Believe in your heart and declare it with your mouth, that Jesus is Lord and He is your Salvation.
Romans 10:9-10 says,
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
If you want a relationship with Jesus, please follow this short prayer from your heart…
