Easter Week 4: Good Shepherd Sunday, 12th May 2019

Daily Word Of God

John 10:27-30

Jesus said:

‘The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice;

I know them and they follow me.

I give them eternal life;

they will never be lost

and no one will ever steal them from my hand.

The Father, for what he has given me, is greater than anyone,

and no one can steal anything from the Father’s hand.

The Father and I are one.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Jesus gives two comforting re-assurances in today’s Gospel passage: (i) I know my sheep, and (ii) no one will ever steal them from My hand.


  • Jesus is so fully committed to protect all us, his followers that He is willing to die that we may be saved from eternal suffering. Are we aware of the protective and caring love that Jesus the Good Shepherd has for us personally?


  • Let us pray that we all will continue to listen to the voice of Jesus and follow Him at all times so that we are not led astray in our pursuits in life.
