designed to have a lasting impact on eternity. Everyone will
die, but few people will ever truly live. To live like a
to live with honor before God and others, to live with
commitment to principle, to live with dedication to a cause,
to live with compassion for others, is to live in a way that
will echo in eternity.

When I first meet a new
group of students in the college composition class I
teach, I already know their names. I take the time
to familiarize myself with their names and photos on
my student roster, so when they walk into my
classroom I can say, “Hello, Jessica,” or “Welcome,
Trevor.” I do this because I know how meaningful it
is when someone knows and calls us by name.
Yet to truly know someone, we need to know more than
that person’s name. In John 10, we can sense the
warmth and care Jesus, the Good Shepherd, has for us
when we read that He “calls his own sheep by name”
(v. 3). He knows even more than our name. He knows
our thoughts, longings, fears, wrongs, and deepest
needs. Because He knows our deepest needs, He has
given us our very life—our eternal life—at the cost
of His own. As He says in verse 11, He “lays down
his life for the sheep.”
You see, our sin
separated us from God. So Jesus, the Good Shepherd,
became the Lamb and sacrificed Himself, taking our
sin on Himself. When He gave His life for us and
then was resurrected, He redeemed us. As a result,
when we accept His gift of salvation through faith,
we are no longer separated from God.
thanks to Jesus! He knows your name and your needs!
Dear Lord, thank You for knowing my name
and for knowing exactly what I need. Thank You for
dying for my sin and for rising from the grave to
defeat death and give me eternal life with You.
God’s knowledge of us knows no bounds.
INSIGHT: In our
relativistic age, some believe that many roads lead
to God. In our passage for today, however, Jesus
says He is the only way to God. Jesus uses the
metaphor of the Good Shepherd to show how He leads
and cares for those who know Him by faith. He also
uses the symbol of a gate to show that He is the
only means by which we can have eternal life. The
one who seeks and saves the lost is the one who laid
down His life for all who believe.

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
