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.

Daily D – Psalm 101:2

Psalm 101:2 ”I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will you come to me?
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“

Daily D – Psalm 100:3

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—
his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
