Love in the Word Church

Focus: John 10:1-21

Jesus is the Good Shepherd and His sheep know His voice. When building a community of believers, it is a waste of time competing over followers. What is often forgotten is that ALL the sheep belong to the Creator - the Great Shepherd! One Lord, one faith, one baptism. When the sheep hears "their" shepherd's voice, they will follow for Jesus draws them to himself through His shepherds. As He sent out His 12 disciples to draw humanity to each of them, He was still only drawing ALL to Himself. This is why it is said, "unless the Lord builds the house, the laborers labor in vain". Don't let anyone make you feel guilty about being drawn to another shepherd. Follow the tugging of your heart for the Master is building His House, not the shepherds. Let's follow Jesus and His Word and leave the rest up to God. Community is NOT about friendship and popularity. It is about following the Master's voice and God's plan for your development. Open your eyes and ears to Jesus, not humanity! Praise Him
