The world has a way of singling out people who appear different.God’s people(sheep)are set apart to shine forth his glory to the life of others.God’s people are different for they do not follow the ways of the world just as the saviour didn’t.
God is with HIS SHEEP and watches over his flock. “Thus shall they know that I the Lord their God am with them,and that they,even the house of Israel,are my people,saith the Lord God.And ye my flock,the flock of my pasture,are men,and I am your God,saith the Lord God”.(Ezekiel 34:30,31).
Jesus is known as the door to HIS SHEEP.“Verily,verily,I say unto you,I am the door to the sheep.I am the door:by me is any man enter in,he shall be saved,and shall go in and out,and find pasture”.(John 10:7,9).
Jesus is the Good Shepherd and knows HIS SHEEP. “I am the good shepherd,and know my sheep,and am known of mine.As the Father knoweth me,even so know I the Father:and I lay down my life for the sheep”.(John 10:14,15).
The day will come when we will worship in the city where God the Father and our Lord are the temple,a place where there’s no need of the sun or the moon for Jesus is the light of it! “And I saw no temple therein:for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.And the city had no need of the sun,neither of the moon,to shine in it:for the glory of God did lighten it,and the Lamb is the light thereof.
And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it:and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it”.(Revelation 21:22-24).
