Are You One of Jesus’ Sheep? (Part 5)

Jimmy SnowdenChristianity1 Comment

n this series of posts we have been looking at how Jesus describes His sheep in John 10 and we have established that Jesus provides five marks about His sheep in John 10:3-9. Again, those five marks are: Jesus’ sheep enter through Him. (vs. 9) Jesus’ sheep hear His voice. (vs. 3) Jesus’ sheep follow Him. (vs. 4) Jesus’ sheep know His voice. (vs. 4) Jesus’ sheep do not recognize the voice a stranger. (vs. 5) In the previous posts we looked at the first, second, fourth, and third marks of Christ’s sheep. In this post we will move forward to consider the final mark.

n the previous post of this series, I pointed you to John 10 where Jesus identifies Himself as the good shepherd who lays down His life for His sheep. But John 10 begs the question, “am I one of Christ’s sheep”? The news of Jesus being the good shepherd is only good news if you are in His fold, and thus it is of utmost importance to know if you are one of His sheep.

ohn 10 is one of the most endearing chapters in the Bible. In John 10 Jesus identifies Himself as the good Shepherd and His people as His sheep. In these verses we learn that Jesus is not a self-serving shepherd like the false shepherds of the Old Testament (see Ezekiel 34).
