"Who Are You Following?"

 

“Who Are You Following?”

 

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them and they follow Me.      John 10:27

 

These are the words of our Lord Jesus Christ as He was questioned by Jews, who had requested that if He was the Christ, then just say so.  And Jesus, who KNEW what they were thinking said to them: ” My sheep hear My voice, and I KNOW them, and they FOLLOW ME.  I give them ETERNAL LIFE, and they will NEVER PERISH, and NO ONE will snatch them out of My hand.  My Father, who has given them to Me, is GREATER than ALL, and NO one is able to SNATCH them out of the Father’s hand.  I and the Father are ONE.  (vv27-30)   But you do NOT BELIEVE because you are NOT a part of My flock.”  (v26)

 

These Jews were NOT followers of Jesus, and they were up to NO GOOD.  They were also influencing others to BELIEVE like they did.  Isaiah 53:6, says:  “We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on Him (Jesus) the iniquity of us all.”   There are times when we ALL decide to go our own way, and we end up regretting the plans and actions that we take.  We end up on the WRONG path, because we STRAY away from our SHEPHERD, and we then become vulnerable to the Devil and his devices, to keep us from being a POSITIVE witness for God, to being a DISGRACE.  Yet God has seen fit to lay our sins and short-comings on His SINLESS, Son, Jesus. 

 

Like the sheep, if we would just LISTEN to the voice of our Shepherd, and FOLLOW Him, instead of veering off His pathway.  We would be able to enjoy the JOY of our SALVATION.  In order to be apart of His flock, and to FOLLOW HIM, you MUST DENY YOURSELF, and PICK UP your CROSS, and be WILLING to FOLLOW HIM ALL the way. 

 

Don’t be like those who are NOT FOLLOWING Christ.  They are the UNBELIEVERS, and they will spend their ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE.  In order to be able to ESCAPE HELL, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  You MUST CONFESS your sins to God and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and inherit ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, because you are FOLLOWING the GOOD SHEPHERD, Jesus Christ, and you are a part of His flock.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
