TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“My sheep listen to my voice;

I know them, and they follow me.

I give them eternal life,

and they shall never perish;

no one will snatch them out of my hand.”

.

– John 10:27-28 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

Those who do not oppose divine grace come to believe in Jesus.

They are known to and loved by Him,

enter under His protection and remain faithful with the help of His grace,

which is a pledge of the eternal life which the Good Shepherd will eventually give them.

.

It is true that in this world they will have to strive

and that in the course of striving they will sustain wounds;

but if they stay united to the Good Shepherd

nothing and no one will snatch Christ’s sheep from Him,

because our Father, God, is stronger than the Evil One.

.

Our hope that God will grant us final perseverance

is not based on our strength but on God’s mercy:

this hope should always motivate us to strive to respond to grace

and to be more faithful to the demands of our faith.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Jesus, remove all that there is inside of me that stops me from listening to Your voice.

Have mercy on me, O Lord.
