What Jesus Did! 'Can't Take Them Away' — John 10:26-29

Sunday, July 22, 2018

"But you don't believe. Why? Because you are not my sheep (people). My sheep listen to my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give my sheep eternal life. They will never die. And no person can take them out of my hand. My Father gave my sheep to me. He is greater than all. No person can steal my sheep out of my Father's hand."
— John 10:26-29 NLT
