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 verse is the most important one for us to know and follow in these perilous times. If we do know Him, we will know His voice and we will be safe from deception and wrong choices. My favorite for now, as it includes even John 3:16. Only can know Him if we are committed to His life in us.
  • Callistus for verse 27
    Thank God I belong to the family of Christ. Lord Jesus always make me to hear your voice, Amen
  • I give God Praise! that I can still hear his voice in the midst of the distractions and noises in this life.
  • ANNE LIZ OTIENO for verse 27
    John 10:27......God identify his own through their obedience, you should not accept any other voice except your father's because God honors His word. When you hear the voice of the LORD, you can not loose direction and all will be well with you with your family and friends. Hearkening to obey fully the voice of God attract favor that brings victory. When you hear the voice of God and obey you are in fellowship with God and goodness and mercy is all around you.
