John 10:27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

The devil has done it again. He’s perverted a positive biblical term and put a negative spin on it.

Jesus refers to believers as His sheep. In today’s world, the thought of being a sheep is insulting. For the world, a sheep is nothing more than a follower who can’t think for themselves. The devil has used this negative spin to influence people’s minds not to follow Jesus. He’s made them feel like they’re more empowered if they think and do for themselves.

Believers being sheep is a good thing since Jesus is our Shepherd. A shepherd guides their sheep along the right path. A shepherd protects his flock. A shepherd provides everything for their sheep. Read Psalm 23. Who wouldn’t want this type of service from Jesus?

Don’t be influenced by the thoughts and ideas of Satan. Following Jesus is the way to go. Let Jesus be your Shepherd and be proud to be His sheep.
