Life Is Not About Knowing…It’s About Following

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.” Martin Luther King Jr.
I’ve sometimes wondered why Jesus uses sheep as an analogy for His followers. I mean sheep are quite dumb. Why not, say an animal that fights back?
So why sheep? They know their shepherd’s voice; and, will run from all other voices.
Jesus doesn’t need to us to do anything for Him. He wants us to everything with Him. And sometimes, that means following His voice, His directives, even when we don’t understand them or why or where He asking us to walk with Him.
Are you one who has to know before you follow? Jesus said His sheep will practice what He says to do. And only afterward, not before, will they know that His directions are true and will lead to freedom (John 8:31-32). This is faith, which without it, you can’t know or please God.
If you want to experience and stay at peace in today’s unsettling times, go with Him wherever He leads without question, even if that means talking a walk outside!
Let His light shine into the dark unknown! Baaaa.
