I hope you caught it. The story of God. I hope this story of God catches you. Jesus comes to teach us how to live in God's story. It's a story of a good and loving Shepherd, who lays down his life for his sheep. He invites us to live in that story. He tells us very plainly here that he gathers his sheep. He gathers them in through the gate and brings them into his sheep fold. he rescues the sheep from danger, and he brings them under his care. Then he calls out the sheep from the sheep fold by name. He knows them by name. We're told that he walks ahead of the sheep leading them out into the world. The sheep follow him because they know His voice. They run from any other voice, because they've learned to depend on the shepherd. He says, My sheep, listen to my voice, I know them. And they follow Me. Just like sheep, the shepherd Jesus is our source of life. He's rescued us, called us out into the world by name and gifted us. So we walk out with the shepherd letting him lead us. each step of the way. Jesus is teaching us in this story, how to live in his story of life, abundant life, to participate with him in this life that he brings to the world. In this story of rescue, there's danger. There's a thief that wants to steal and kill and destroy the flock. And when we learn to live in the story of God, by the power of God, we will experience deliverance from this thief who wants to kill us. And it will be the good shepherd who delivers and protects us. And because of him, we will experience a rich and satisfying life on his care. Jesus says the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, I came that they might have life and habit abundant. He wants us to learn how to live there. And the only way we can is to gather under his care. Hear him call us out by name into the world with purpose, understanding what he's made us for. We must learn to depend on him each step of the way, as he leads us, following his voice each day, training our souls to hear him because he is a good shepherd, who has laid down his life for us, who knows us by name. He's called us out into this pasture this world and he's given us purpose. We are invited to participate with the Good Shepherd sharing his message of abundant life. You and I are invited into the story of God. Rejoice in him today, our good shepherd, listen to His voice and follow him out into your day out into this world, sharing his message of life. That's the prayer that I have for my own soul. That's the prayer that I have for my family for my wife, my daughter's my son. And that's the prayer that I have for you. May it be so
