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.

    What a loving and powerful God we serve. God has anointed us therfore no one can touch his anointed one. He who loves Jesus will keep his commadments and follow him till rapture. No matter what life we face dont let hands go off with God and never ever give a place for the defeated enemy to use us. All battles belongs to Jesus and victory are for us who enter the door of God
  • Tina
    Very powerful comments! Thank you Jesus for being the ultimate Lamb--The Lamb of God!! I love you Jesus--forever!!
  • Trevor
    The scripture is so profound. Think about the good shephard gave his life so that we could be saved. Furthermore, after he laid down his life for us, he prepares a place for us in heaven where we can feast with him herefter and also be in is presence forever. Imagine the selfless act that we can all be benifectors of his love.

    In John 14:6 Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No one cometh to the Father except by Him.
    If we come any other way we are a thief!! Jesus is the door, and we must come throuh the Door....
  • MockingBird
    The thief is the devil ,of course : he is here illegally : he came to kill , steal , and to destroy , in every area of our lives, not just in a certain one : Jesus came in legally and He gives life and that I can have more abundantly through His word and His Spirit that is within . I have all and abound. !!!!
