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.

    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."

    To Felicia - Yes, Jesus said He is the door, but HOW do we go through that door .....?
  • 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.
  • Felicia
    Verse 10
    The Lord wants us to have every resource here and now to meet the demands of this life. We don't have to wait until we arrive in heaven to enjoy peace and contentment. Christ indwells us so that we may experience His working in our lives. So Lord, we bring you into every aspect of our lives, help us to live every day in union with you. Thank you Lord.

    Jesus came that I might have life I get more but he gave his life so that we can have life be careful and I love no man to take it the enemy comes to kill steal and destroy thank you Jesus you came to save me and Deliver Me from all evil in Jesus name amen

    Verse 18 shows that no man takes Jesus' life from him, but he surrenders it of his own initiative.
