"My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand."
In the Garden, the serpent’s alluring lie was, “You shall become as God.” Adam and Eve’s consequences for falling for his scheme continue to this day. Sin and its effects are all around us and inside us.
But God never tricks us; what He says is true. And Jesus, our Good Shepherd, leads us in truth because He is the truth (John 14:6). Notice that Jesus doesn’t say we need to listen “for” His voice, but “to” it. He promises we will never be left to wonder if we are hearing Him or not.
EVERY CHRISTIAN IS SPIRIT-EMPOWERED TO DO TWO THINGS: LISTEN TO JESUS AND FOLLOW HIM.
