"The gatekeeper opens the gate for Him, and the sheep recognize His voice and come to Him. He calls His own sheep by name and leads them out.After He has gathered His own flock, He walks ahead of them, and they follow Him because they know His Voice", John 10:3-4. There is a popular reality tv show, "The Voice". Some of you may have watched it. The contestants have lovely singing voices, and there is fun comradery between the four judges. But there is another, better Voice, The Voice of The Great Shepherd, Jesus Christ. This Voice cares for His people, keeps us from harm, and communes with us tenderly. This Voice leads us through our life, loves us through our pain, and lightens our pathway. This Voice surrounds us with Peace, saves us by His blood, and smooths out our rough places. I am for Team Jesus! "But for those who are righteous, the way is not steep and rough. You are a God who does what is right, and you smooth out the path ahead of them", Isaiah 26:7.
