Our Text for this Sunday’s Message

Our text for this coming Sunday will be John 10:1-10 (NRSV):
1 “Very truly, I tell you, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold by the gate but climbs in by another way is a thief and a bandit. 2  The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3  The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep hear his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4  When he has brought out all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5  They will not follow a stranger, but they will run from him because they do not know the voice of strangers.” 6  Jesus used this figure of speech with them, but they did not understand what he was saying to them. 7  So again Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. 8  All who came before me are thieves and bandits; but the sheep did not listen to them. 9  I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture. 10  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
