Are You Sheepish Towards God?
I was reading John 10 about how Jesus is our shepherd- so, sorry for the sheep jokes. They were cheap. Ok, I'll stop rhyming. Jesus was saying that the sheep know their shepherd's voice and they follow him. They will not listen to a stranger.
In John 10:7-10 Jesus says "I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the gate, whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out and find pasture."
Jesus' word and examples are what we strive for. If we follow him we will know that we are on the correct path. That is a comforting thought. Do I want to be saved? Yes. Do you want to be saved? I'm pretty sure. Jesus shows the way!!
At least I didn't end this post with a 'counting sheep' reference! Oh wait, I just did. Sorry... :)
