Who Are the Others? You and Me!

“In the Gospel of John, Jesus discusses his calling by saying that there were to be other people besides those of the first century who would hear his voice, And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd– John 10:16). Jesus is the good Shepherd and the great Shepherd and the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls and the chief Shepherd (John 10:14, Hebrews 13:20, I Peter 2:25, and 5:4). Today, you are among those others to whom Jesus was referring. Reading the words of Christ is easy, but it is an entirely different experience to actually hear his sweet voice that speaks directly to our hearts with inspiration that always strengthens believing with a heavenly calmness. Our Savior’s voice encourages, exhorts, and edifies men and women who answer his call to walk with him who walks with the Creator.” ~LMJ~

Our Christian Neighbors

“We should be so blessed that God called us individually to His gracious Word, and be happy for all of God’s children. Jesus said in the Gospel of John 10:16, And other sheep I have which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. It is futile to worry about what other people may think or believe in other Churches. We Christians could be much kinder, happier, and gentler, Christ-like people if we were more concerned about ourselves rather than worrying about what our Christian neighbors might practice or think (Galatians 6:10). Besides, what other people practice and think is honestly between them and God, and we really do not know for certain what people think in the heart of their hearts.” ~LMJ~
