I am the Gate Keeper

This Sunday’s Gospel compels us to think about what it means to ‘follow the Good Shepherd’ as ‘one by one he calls his own sheep and leads them’.  How blessed we are to know that Jesus is calling us by name and shows His love is infinite. We need to be mindful that comparing ourselves to others can be like a thief stealing our joy.  Jesus loves everything about us and by listening to Jesus’s voice, we can ask Him “What do you love about me, Jesus?”.  How can I use what He loves about me to share with others and follow his path through the gate to be close to God.  We remember that, just like a shepherd looks after his sheep and knows what they need to thrive, Jesus is just the same for all of us.   To follow His path we should do the same for others too.
