Faith of Jesus Daily Devotional - Day 327
nkjv@Revelation:14:12 @ Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
nkjv@John:10:1 @ "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
nkjv@John:10:2 @ But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
nkjv@John:10:3 @ To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
nkjv@John:10:4 @ And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.
nkjv@John:10:5 @ Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers."
nkjv@John:10:6 @ Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them.
nkjv@John:10:7 @ Then Jesus said to them again, "Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
nkjv@John:10:8 @ All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
nkjv@John:10:9 @ I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
nkjv@John:10:10 @ The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
nkjv@John:10:11 @ "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.
nkjv@John:10:12 @ But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.
nkjv@John:10:13 @ The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.
nkjv@John:10:14 @ I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.
nkjv@John:10:15 @ As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
nkjv@John:10:16 @ And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.
nkjv@John:10:17 @ "Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.
nkjv@John:10:18 @ No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father."
nkjv@John:10:19 @ Therefore there was a division again among the Jews because of these sayings.
nkjv@John:10:20 @ And many of them said, "He has a demon and is mad. Why do you listen to Him?"
nkjv@John:10:21 @ Others said, "These are not the words of one who has a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?"
