How do you portray your duties to God?

The three readings portray the duties of the people of God. We are personified as sheep and if we belong to the herd, then Jesus’ words are true: “The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice.”

How do you portray your duties to God?

Acts 13:14, 43-52; Rev 7:9.14b -17; Jn 10:27-30

We have always known of the good shepherd. A good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep. He leads the sheep to green pastures and still waters and bears the scent of his sheep.

But what do WE do? We, as sheep, of the flock of Christ? What is our duty? What is our responsibility as part of the fold? What is our call?

The three readings portray the duties of the people of God. We are personified as sheep and if we belong to the herd, then Jesus’ words are true: “The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice.”

Do we really listen to him? Day and night, we worship and praise him. Our hearts should rejoice to hear his message. We, as sheep, are all not the same. We are people of every race and nation, tribe and language.

Hence, as God’s children - we ought to be united. Though God is our ultimate Shepherd, we too are chosen to be shepherds in our day to day lives; like Paul and Barnabas, we have to take the message of God for others to listen.

Jesus also uttered: “Those who refuse to listen to me are not of my fold.” They are wolves in sheep’s clothing. They are puffed up with jealousy and they try to snatch away the sheep of God. But we should still be alert, by listening to his voice; knowing that “The Father has given them to the Son, and no one can steal them from Him”. --Glen Braganza SJ
