Today’s daily devotion is based on John 10:26,27 “You do not believe because you are not my sheep. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”
We are Jesus’ sheep when we believe in him. When God the Holy Spirit leads us to trust in Jesus as our Savior, he opens our ears to recognize Jesus’ voice. We hear Jesus speaking to us in his Word. We hear how he rescued us from all our sins through his perfect life and his death on the cross. We hear his promise always to care for us and bring us safely home to him in heaven. Like sheep who know their shepherd’s voice, we recognize Jesus’ voice and eagerly follow him wherever he may lead us.
Please pray with me, Jesus, my Shepherd; I praise you that you have opened my ears to hear and recognize your voice. Lead me to follow you always. Amen.
