The Shepherd’s Voice

Preachers Corner https://www.preacherscorner.org.uk

Jesus is the Good Shepherd who gave his life for the sheep. He is still calling to needy sinners, he says “come to me”. Have you come to Jesus? The Bible tells us that as sinners far away from a holy God we need a saviour. In the Gospel preaching, you will hear of the saviour who God has provided, the Lord Jesus Christ.


Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation 

John 9:39-41And Jesus said, For judgment am I come into this world, that they which see not may see, and they which see may become blind.40 And [some] of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things, and they said to him, Are we blind also?41 Jesus said to them, If ye were blind ye would not have sin; but now ye say, We see, your sin remains.”

John 10:1-18Verily, verily, I say to you, He that enters not in by the door to the fold of the sheep, but mounts up elsewhere, *he* is a thief and a robber;but he that enters in by the door is [the] shepherd of the sheep.To him the porter opens; and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.When he has put forth all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice.But they will not follow a stranger, but will flee from him, because they know not the voice of strangers.

This allegory spoke Jesus to them, but they did not know what it was [of] which he spoke to them.Jesus therefore said again to them, Verily, verily, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.All whoever came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not hear them.I am the door: if any one enter in by me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and shall go out and shall find pasture.10 The thief comes not but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I am come that they might have life, and might have [it] abundantly.11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep:12 but he who serves for wages, and who is not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf seizes them and scatters the sheep.13 Now he who serves for wages flees because he serves for wages, and is not himself concerned about the sheep.14 I am the good shepherd; and I know those that are mine, and am known of those that are mine,

15 as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.16 And I have other sheep which are not of this fold: those also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one flock, one shepherd.17 On this account the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it again.18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have authority to lay it down and I have authority to take it again. I have received this commandment of my Father.”
