Calling All Sheep
John 10:27–28: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me, and I give them eternal life and they shall never perish. Neither shall anyone snatch them out of my hand.”
Many years ago, a group of friends was visiting my sheep farm. The sheep were scattered throughout acres of pasture. “Call them in. Try,” I told them. One at a time, I challenged each person. Try as they may, loudly or softly, all the sheep just ignored them.
Then I stepped up and gave one call, to which they all came running at full speed, knowing they would be fed and they would be safe. As our day grows towards evening, I hear a voice. Jesus is calling us all to hasten and to draw near to Him. Can you hear Him?
Remember my brother, my sister; it’s time to pray.
