Wesley's Notes for John 10:27


10:27-29 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me, &c. - Our Lord still alludes to the discourse he had before this festival. As if he had said, My sheep are they who, Hear my voice by faith; Are known (that is, approved) by me, as loving me; and Follow me, keep my commandments, with a believing, loving heart. And to those who, Truly believe (observe three promises annexed to three conditions) I give eternal life. He does not say, I will, but I give. For he that believeth hath everlasting life. Those whom, I know truly to love me, shall never perish, provided they abide in my love. Those who follow me, neither men nor devils can pluck out of my hand. My Father who hath, by an unchangeable decree, given me all that believe, love, and obey, is greater than all in heaven or earth, and none is able to pluck them out of his hand.

    This is truly one of the most prophetic of the scriptures. Jesus gives us light unto the magnificent grace that have been bestowed upon his saints. That we have the power by the Holy Ghost to endure temptation. We hear his voice, we follow him. We have the power to overcome the evil one by faith. Jesus also tells us that he and the father are one as we are one through his life that he laid down.

    verse 38, we must show by the way we live that we accepted Christ. people must see you and believe that Jesus do change lives. we are ambassadors let us present Christ with our work, character, attitude and behaviour.
  • STEPHANIE
    Irene-If you haven't already and if you truly want to go through that door (Jesus Christ), surrender your life to Jesus. Ask him to be your personal Lord and Savior. Be baptized in water. Go to church more. Show more love and compassion as Jesus did. As John 14:6 says, "Jesus is the way, the truth and the life."
  • Tsukwam
    Verse 16: Jesus says - "And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd". Now by the power of the Holy Spirit at work in our lives, for those of us who have received Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we are commissioned to reach out to the lost all over the world for the salvation of their souls.
