Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for John 10:5


10:5 They will not follow a stranger - One whom Christ hath not sent, who doth not answer the preceding description. Him they will not follow - And who can constrain them to it? But will flee from him - As from the plague. For they know not the voice of strangers - They cannot relish it; it is harsh and grating to them. They find nothing of God therein.

    I agree, Satan is full of lies and deceit. Jesus is the one that gave his life to save us. I would rather follow Jesus.

    "I am the Good Shepherd: the Good Shepherd gives His life for the sheep." John 10:11 The entire purpose and duty of the Shepherd is to care for the sheep. In whatever things we need whether for food and clothing and shelter, or protection from predators Jesus cares for us continually, and puts Himself between us and every danger or threat. If He leads us up into rocky and sparse places He is still our Good Shepherd. If we need washing and grooming, He does so with love and skill and the right firmness and gentleness. If we are hurt or injured or sick, He cares for us to make us strong and healthy again. If one wanders away because we are stupid and simple, and need to be watched! then He knows where to search and find us, and how to bring us back to safety. The Good Shepherd puts our needs first, and knows well how to maintain us. If we want to help Him be a Good Shepherd for others, then we need to learn from Him everything there is to know about the business of being a shepherd.
