By this morning's word, we can see the work philosophy of Jesus.
- No one will snatch them out of my hand (22-31)
The Phariseen's heart is in suspense. They are as funambulist who walk on a thread, because they haven't faith in Jesus. They don't believe in him and asked miracles again to believe in him. Jesus says that even if he shown miracles, they will not believe, because of their incredulity. But the true reason is that they don't belong to Jesus. They aren't his sheeps. But to these who the Father had given to Jesus, Jesus takes care of them, so that no one be loosen. We must have this faith too to sheep's salvation.
- For which work ? (32-42)
They wanted to stone him, because they said that it's a man who believe is God, and it's a blasphemy. But with patience, Jesus argued that it's not blasphemy, because him and the Father are the same. They are one. It's obvious if we see the works coming to the Father and made by his hand. God named them gods. All the more so, if we focus our glance on Jesus and his works, we will accept that he is God. A lot of people believed. They are the sheeps of Jesus.
Prayer : Lord, help me to have faith to the salvation of sheeps. Make me keep the faith remembering your works.
Bottom line : All the sheeps, without loose any
