“My sheep respond as they hear My voice; I know them intimately, and they follow Me. I give them a life that is unceasing, and death will not have the last word. Nothing or no one can steal them from My hand.” (John 10: 27-28, the Voice Translation)
These are precious promises for us. The Christ is that voice of Truth that is always speaking to those earnest, honest seekers. The Word of God, good, Love, is compelling. It rings true in our hearts, and we naturally respond.
That responsiveness is a humble awareness. We feel known intimately by God, and so we are ready to follow. We trust this Shepherd, this light of Love that is leading us away from a sense of limitation, gloom, darkness, and death. We feel cared for and that our life has meaning. We are important to God and to His flock. We belong.
We can listen daily for this gentle yet powerful voice of God, coming to us right where we are through His loving Christ. We can recognize this guidance, affection, and protection as right and healing. We can turn away gratefully from the allure of the world’s predictions and fears, and heed that pure and true voice that surely and eternally loves us.
