All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. (John 10:8)

Strong words. 

What does He mean? 

Who is He talking about? 

Have others claimed to be the messiah? 

The people wanted a solution. 

Someone to lead them out of bondage. 

To be their king again. 

They wanted independence. 

They wanted freedom. 

But everyone who came to lead them out. 

Was still just the same. 

With no hope. 

With no possibilities. 

Only more of the same. 

He is offering real freedom. 

Freedom for everyone. 

From tyranny. 

From bondage. 

From sin. 

He does not offer false hope. 

It is real and it is tangible. 

You have nothing to fear. 

He won’t fleece you. 

Listen to Him. 

Not the arguments.
