People's Bible Notes for John 10:9


Joh 10:9 By me if any man enter in, he shall be saved. Christ is at once the door, the shepherd and the pasture. His pasture is the bread of life (Joh 6:35,48) and the water of life (Joh 4:14).

Discussion for John 10

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

    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. !!!!
