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.

    To Stephanie - Thank-you for your response. I know that we can have more 'n more of Jesus; we can never have enough; we grow from faith to faith; I want to encourage to - PRAY for our President. That GOD's will will be done in his decisions for this nation and world. God bless you and yours, Stephanie.
  • Stephanie
    Yes, Irene123, I was referring to you. I think the comment/question you had made was "How do you go through the door...?". It wasn't that I was implying you didn't go to church enough, just some ways that you can have Jesus in your heart.
  • Irene123
    To Stephanie - Were you talking to me .....? Because you didn't use the "123" - I can't be sure, nor could I find any name of Irene or Irene123 in the back comments of this chapter. If you were I wish I remembered what I said to make you think I don't attend ch. enough,

    I am puzzled by verse 34 statement "ye are gods"
  • 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.
