My reading this morning has given me such joy I wanted to share. John 10:27) My sheep hear My voice,and I know them, and they follow Me. 28)And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29)My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. NKJV In these verses Jesus gives three characteristics of His sheep (believers); 1)they hear 2)they follow 3)they shall never perish. We as believers, as followers of Christ may have our troubles, our trials and tribulations, yet we can know no matter what comes against us no harm can come to our eternal life. No evil can touch our souls if we just continue to put our trust in Him. The Lord is our Shepherd; and just like a shepherd protects his sheep, Jesus watches over and protects us from eternal harm. Remember, we serve a mighty God, and nothing matters beyond our relationship with Him. Life’s setbacks, disappointments, and failures are only for a little while. Nothing can come against us that He does not allow. Once we choose Him as Lord and Savior, trust that He will work all things out for our good. There is nothing or no one greater than He and nothing or no one is able to snatch us from Him. That right there should be good news for us all.
