What do FAITHFUL SHEEP do? HEAR and ARE KNOWN and KNOW and FOLLOW! Hallelujah, oh yes! Please consider this verse:
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:” John 10:27 KJV
“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3 KJV
The Lord Jesus Christ is our loving GOOD SHEPHERD. We who have turned from our sins and believe in Him as Lord and in His death and resurrection and turned to God and His ways and have been forgiven and given forever life with God and been indwelt by His Holy Spirit who are now heaven-bound rather than hell-and-the-lake-of-fire-bound are His loved and loving beloved sheep.
We as the Lord’s sheep are to HEAR and READ the Bible, to BE KNOWN BY and TO KNOW the Lord in ever-growing deeply intimate forever fellowship with Him, and to lovingly, humbly, devotedly, obediently, and faithfully FOLLOW Him bringing Him praise, honor, glory, pleasure, and joy! Please note that OBEYING GOD is fundamental to FOLLOWING the Lord and to responding to His unfathomable love for us and should be an expression of our ever-growing love for our Good Shepherd, Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Father in heaven, Savior, master, first love, God almighty in Christ!
Friend, let us be FAITHFUL SHEEP! Let us joyfully and blessedly and thankfully HEAR, BE KNOWN BY and KNOW, AND FOLLOW JESUS! Please spend time daily reading the Bible, spending time alone with the Lord praying, seeking Him, hearing Him, obeying Him, praising Him, worshiping Him, singing to Him, experiencing and enjoying Him, purifying yourself, repenting, drawing ever nearer to Him and Him to you, learning from Him and of Him, pouring out your heart to Him, growing in intimacy with Him, coming to KNOW Him more and more, and in the process of all this being KNOWN by Him! Oh hallelujah, glory be to the Lord God almighty! Amen!
Father, help me and my readers to be FAITHFUL SHEEP! Show us by your Holy Spirit where we are lacking, where we are off course, where we need chastening and correction, where we need repentance, where we need growth, and grow us oh Lord! Teach us your ways! Help us to be the beloved sheep you created us to be! Help us to love, honor, and cherish you as our Good Shepherd and Lord forever and ever, AMEN! Help us dear Father by the love and power of your Holy Spirit to be your blessed FAITHFUL SHEEP!
