Daily Word Of God

John 10:22-30

It was the time of the Feast of Dedication in Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the Temple walking up and down in the Portico of Solomon. The Jews gathered round him and said, ‘How much longer are you going to keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us openly.’

Jesus replied: ‘I have told you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name are my witness; but you do not believe, because you are no sheep of mine. 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?

  • In today’s Gospel Jesus speaks of the tremendous trust He has in God, His Father. We too should have such deep trust in Jesus who is our Good Shepherd.


  • In this life we will inevitably experience pain, suffering, sickness and death but our consolation is that Jesus will ultimately lead us to eternal life with Him. Thus, our true peace and security in life is found in Jesus alone.


  • How secure is your faith and trust in God? Do the material things and secular comforts distract you from the true peace and security of Jesus, our Risen Lord?
