How to Imagine a Deeper Relationship with Jesus | Prayer on John 10
Sometimes Jesus uses poetic, imaginative language to illustrate his relationship with us, especially in the Gospel of John. These are great places in Scripture to use for prayer. John 10 is particularly one of those places where Jesus gives us imaginative language to help us grasp his good and loving purpose for us as our “Good Shepherd.” This is a rich passage from which to pray that will help you deepen your appreciation for all that Jesus is for you and why you should trust and follow him.
John 10:10–11 NIV
10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. 11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
John 10:14–15 NIV
14 I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep.
John 10:27–30 NIV
27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.
