Daily D – John 10:27-28
My sheep hear my voice, I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand.
JOHN 10:27-28 (CSB)
We turn to these verses most often to remind ourselves or to instruct others that salvation is something Jesus gives and our Father in heaven holds onto for us (verses 29 and 30). We cannot earn salvation or keep it. Jesus does all the work. That’s good news.
Tempting as it is, let us not skip over verse 27 in our hurry to get to verses 28 and following.
Deep and satisfying relationships are built upon the foundation of knowing and being known. The deeper the relationship, the fewer the words necessary to communicate and to experience common delights.
Those who expect to hear Jesus, who acknowledge his guidance, and who respond in concerted effort with him demonstrate that they truly know him.
Today is a good day to lean in to listen to Jesus. Draw near. Ask him to speak to your heart. Read his words of truth and life. Notice what he is saying to you. Attune your heart to him. Align your response with his direction. Seek his strength for what he asks of you. Trust him to be true to his nature and character.
I will listen for the voice of Jesus.
Our Father, thank you that you fill every hungry heart. Give us ears to hear what you are saying to us today. Give us willing and obedient hearts to do what you say. Give us deep and abiding faith that what you want for us is better than anything we could want for ourselves. Give us the strength we need for all that is before us. Amen.

1 Chronicles 22:9-13 But you will have a son who will be a man of peace and rest, and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side. His name will be Solomon, and I will grant Israel peace and quiet during his reign. He is the one who will build a house for my Name. He will be my son, and I will be his father. And I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’ “Now, my son, the Lord be with you, and may you have success and build the house of the Lord your God, as he said you would. May the Lord give you discretion and understanding when he puts you in command over Israel, so that you may keep the law of the Lord your God. Then you will have success if you are careful to observe the decrees and laws that the Lord gave Moses for Israel. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged.”
