Gospel Reflection for April 21, 2013, 4th Sunday of Easter

16 Apr

Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me.”

John 10:27

Sunday’s short gospel passage comes near the end of John’s gospel, chapter 10. Jesus knows us. This passage promises his followers will never perish. No one can snatch us from Jesus’ hand or his Father’s hand. These consoling promises make a comforting funeral gospel; our relationship with Jesus and his Father is infinite and eternal. 

What insights into our relationship with God as believers do you find in the imagery of the good shepherd?
