Christian Character & Conduct - 2017
Weekly Devotional - Week 5
Back to the basics. We have seen in the first four devotionals that true Christian character will yield conduct in keeping with faith and sanctification. John in his Gospel states:
 
To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. John 10:3-4
 
Jesus was teaching his disciples an important truth. A true shepherd knows his sheep and the sheep know the voice of the shepherd. (I actually witnessed this while on a visit to Israel.) The point Jesus was making is that He knows the true believers. He gives to His own His Holy Spirit to recognize, believe and follow Him. The true believer is forever linked to the Gospel message and to the desire to live for Him. The one who pretends, outwardly looks good or is faking faith is not recognized or partaking of God's grace and faith. Let's remember that God's call for redemption is personal and forever, for the believer. May we each desire to live for the Good Shepherd, hear His voice, and follow His instructions. True Christian character and conduct begin with Christ our Good Shepherd. Do you know Him?
