Today Holy Spirit revealed a mind-blowing promise to me today. So often when reading John 10, my mind tends to blur and pick out the “typical highlights” – most prominently verses 10 and 11. But today after praying that Holy Spirit would let me look upon the text with “new eyes, full of wonder and amazement” I saw a promise tucked away in John 10:9 – “I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.” I think I always got tripped up by Jesus being the door AND the shepherd, but missed that we become His sheep by coming to Him, joining His flock, and even if we wander out of the sheepfold, we will find pasture (a place of edification and rest) – simply because we are His!
