(Jesus speaking) “I alone am the Good Shepherd, and I know those whose hearts are mine, for they recognise me and know me…

My own sheep will hear my voice and I know each one, and they will follow me. I give to them the gift of eternal life and they will never be lost and no one has the power to snatch them out of my hands.” (John 10:14, 27-28)

I heard a preacher once tell the congregation: “Close your eyes and see all that you have accumulated in your life as balloons on strings. These balloons can represent people, jobs, money, objects … Now see yourself as approaching Jesus. Look up into his face, his eyes. As you stare into His beautiful face your fingers will automatically start to open. Any balloons that fly away were never really yours – any that Jesus catches and gives back to you are yours to keep …”
