John 10:22-30 Reflection

John 10:22-30 Reflection

Are you a humble Christian? Along with that do you have a leadership role in any part of your life?  Do you need to sit at the head of the dinner table?  When praised do you briefly smile or say thank you, then move on?  Do you pray for or help others without any expectations? Do you ever make a claim about how great you are?  Nor does Jesus or should he have to just like the people in your life know you do not need to either.  (John 10: 22-30)

Jesus Is Rejected by the Jews

22 At that time the festival of the Dedication took place in Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon. 24 So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered, “I have told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name testify to me; 26 but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep. 27 My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 What my Father has given me is greater than all else, and no one can snatch it out of the Father’s hand. 30 The Father and I are one.”
