In this passage, Jesus uses the analogy of sheep (his flock – those who follow him) that he guides and protects. He is the gate (the Shepherd); the only way to be saved is through him. His sheep follow him because they know his voice. Christ is our protector!
Do you know his voice? Are you following him or are you distracted by other voices? Do you seek his voice and hear what he has to say?
In contrast to the thief who comes in the night to take life, Jesus gives life and gives it more abundantly. Have you received Christ’s offer of life?
