Gospel: John 10:27-30
My sheep hear my voice and I know them; they follow me and I give them eternal life. They shall never perish, and no one will ever steal them from me. What my Father has given me, is greater than all things else. To snatch it out of the Father’s hand, no one is able! I and the Father are One.”
READ: Jesus appropriates us as his sheep. He knows every- one of us. He gives us eternal life. And there will be no end in our friendship with him. No one will be able to lead us astray, since Jesus owns us.
REFLECT: You are lucky to be considered God’s sheep. You belong to his fold. Jesus has a strong bond of friendship with you. He likes you. How come that many times you still go astray? Sin is an indication that you are not completely God’s own. It is a refusal to belong to him. You are giving a part of you to something else, something that is evil.
PRAY: Lord, help me to be always in your fold. Always guide me that I may never stray away from your paths of righteousness. I am happy to be considered your child. Thank you for sending Jesus to me to show me your ways. Help me realize the value of friendship with you, by listening to the voice of your son.
ACT: Read the holy scriptures always. Be guided accordingly. Avoid occasions of sins. Do not play fire with evil. It will outsmart you. Don’t abuse your freedom.
