Jesus Told This Simple Story, part 5

December 10, 2017

Jesus told this simple story,

but they had no idea what he was talking about.

So he tried again. “I’ll be explicit, then.

I am the Gate for the sheep.

All those others are up to no good

—sheep stealers, every one of them.

But the sheep didn’t listen to them.

I am the Gate.

Anyone who goes through me will be cared for

—will freely go in and out, and find pasture.

A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy.

I came so they can have real and eternal life,

more and better life than they ever dreamed of.”

John 10:6-10, The Message version

 

Jesus combined “real” life and “eternal life”as though they belong together.

Because they do, because they are.

May you and I realize that connection today.
