Let the Good Shepherd heal our wounds and let His life be in us.
“The thief only comes to steal, to kill and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly “(John 10,10).
We continue to listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd who guides, guides, directs, the lives of His sheep. Today, the Good Shepherd warns us that there is a thief who steals the sheep. And why does this thief steal the sheep? He kills, steals, and destroys the sheep.
It is important to understand that the enemy of our soul is a thief, he steals the souls that belong to God. He wants to rob us that we no longer belong to God, and then he kills and destroys the life of God that is in us. The thief tears away the grace of God that is within us, but he only does it if the sheep are seduced, if she lets herself be stolen from the lap of God.
When we are in Jesus, the thief of this world does not have the power to steal, kill or destroy us, because the Good Shepherd cares for and does not neglect us. Sometimes pastors are distracted and deluded by other occupations and concerns, but our Good Shepherd does not. He watches over, cares for us at all times, even when we run from Him.
The Good Shepherd awaits us, He runs after us. He wants to get us out of the hands of the evil one, the one who robs us of God, the one who presents deceptive, deceitful attractions that pull us out, pull us.
Let us not allow ourselves to be robbed from the lap of Jesus, let us not be taken from the fold of Jesus because the thief does not come as a thief; rather, he arrives with options to draw us. And when we wish to return, the heart is ruined, broken, lost grace, taste, taste for the things of Heaven.
Let the Good Shepherd, who came to give us life in abundance, to the full, to care for us, to heal our wounds and to have His life in us.
God bless you!
