Those who heard Jesus use this illustration didn't understand what He Meant, So He Explained It To Them. "I Assure You, I Am The Gate For The Sheep," He Said. All others who came before Me were Thieves and Robbers. But The True Sheep Did Not Listen To Them. Yes, I Am The Gate. Those who Come In Through Me Will Be Saved. Wherever They Go, They Will Find Green Pastures. The Thief's Purpose Is To Steal and Kill and Destroy. My Purpose Is To Give Life In All Its Fullness." John 10:6-10 Lesson here: We Are At War, And The Two Spiritual Realms That Are Pursuing Us, are playing for keeps! We Were All Born In Darkness, and Satan's Pursuit is to keep us there. "But you are not like that, For You Are A Chosen People. You Are A Kingdom Of Priests, God's Holy Nation, His Very Own Possession. This Is So You Can Show Others The Goodness Of God, For HE Called You Out Of The Darkness Into His Wonderful Light. Once You Were Not A People; Now You Are The People Of God. Once You Received None Of God's Mercy; Now You Have Received His Mercy." 1 Peter 2:9-10 "But You Are Not Controlled By Your Sinful Nature. You Are Controlled By The Spirit, If You Have The Spirit Of God Living In You. ( And Remember that those who do not Have The Spirit Of Christ Living In Them Are Not Christians At All.) Since Christ Lives Within You, Even Though Your Body Will Die Because Of Sin, Your Spirit Is Alive Because You Have Been Made Right With God. The Spirit Of God, Who Raised Christ From The Dead, Lives In You. And Just As HE Raised Christ From The Dead, He Will Give Life To Your Mortal Body By This Same Spirit Living Within You." Romans 8:9-11 It Is Important That We Know That Jesus Is The Only Way, The Truth, and The Life. John 14:6 It Is Equally Important That We Know We Cannot Serve Two Masters. Matthew 6:24 Master satan is pursuing us to kill, steal and destroy us. While Christ The Master Is Pursuing Us With His LOVE! Who are you Pursuing? Our Destiny Is In The Choices We Pursue!
