27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29My Father, who has given them to me,is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30
Jesus is talking His relationship with the people who become His disciples.
They know Him. Now.
He is speaking with them. Now.
They are following Him. Now.
They have life. Now.
They have a victory over death. Now.
They are securely in His grip. Now.
They are the gift of the Heavenly Father to Jesus. Now.
They are simultaneously in the Father’s hand. Now.
I’m so glad for the grace to be living what starts now.
