Don’t Be Cooped Up

John 10:9-11 (NIV)
In many countries, sheep spend their lives in fenced in pastures where they spend most of their time grazing and milling about. God’s goal isn’t to simply fill the world with people who believe the right things and stay in their comfort zone. It is His goal to fill the world with people who are transparent and who imitate Christ and listen to His voice. Some sheep come running as soon as their shepherd calls, but some struggle to obey his lead – going astray or staying put whenever temptation strikes. It takes a lot more energy to follow a wandering shepherd than to be cooped up in a pen! But we are called to be disciples of a God who is always on the move, one who wants us to go with him, making disciples to the ends of the earth. We need to learn how to recognize His voice, to go where he wants us to go, and to serve and imitate him so that we can share his good news with the world. God Loves Ya 😉
