He was not supposed to be born this time of year and even worse, he was born in the middle of a crowded livestock pen with lots of sheep running around and all over him. He was all dirty and knocked down so many times it was hard for him to stand. I finally got over to him to protect him while the cowboys moved the sheep out of that pen. One ewe would not leave but she would not come up close to him. She just kept quietly calling to him. He would start toward her but as I tried to move away, he would try to follow me. This disturbed the ewe very much. She kept calling and calling and the newborn lamb finally went to her. I stood very still so as not to distract him again. That baby lamb reminds me of something in the Bible. When we accept Jesus Christ as Savior we need to learn to recognize His voice or know when He is speaking to us, (Jeremiah 7:23&11:4, John 10:4&14&17:3). He speaks through His word the Bible. It may not be an audible voice but we will know in our inner being. In John 10:27 it says, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;” Do we know His voice or is there so much worldly clatter that we can not hear him? See you in Church next Sunday.
