“My sheep hear my voice; I know them and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one can take them out of the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.” — John 10
The wonderful truth is that I know that I am one of Jesus’s sheep, who cannot be taken from His hand. The terrible truth is that I am granted the free will to ignore his ownership, and to neglect my duty to follow. May I no longer do so!
