Quotable

7 Feb

“The security of the sheep is seen in that ‘no one will snatch them out of my hand’ (John 10:28)…Any potential thieves and robbers must deal with Jesus, who has already conquered sin and death on behalf of his sheep.  There is no chance that they can succeed.  If this promise were not enough, Jesus reminds his listeners that to be secure in him is to be secure in the Father as well…To be secure in Christ is to be secure in the Father, and that is to be secure completely and secure forever.  Now that is security!  Jesus is the promised Good Shepherd, and through him the sheep ‘will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.'”
Timothy Z. Witmer, The Shepherd Leader (P&R, 2010)
