JOHN 10:9

January 12, 2023

John 10:9
“I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved,
and will go in and out and find pasture.”

There is a pasture found in providence.  A sweet and healthy pasture indeed this is to watch the Lord’s providential dealings with us spread through a long series of years.  It is seeing the Lord’s providential hand which makes the commonest temporary mercies sweet.  Every nibble of grass or lock of hay which we can believe to be specially provided for us by the hand of that good Shepherd becomes thereby doubly sweet.  But, Oh, what pastures in grace has God provided for His hungry sheep!  Look at the promises and declarations, the sacred truths and heavenly consolations scattered up and down the Scriptures of truth.  But of all the spiritual pasture provided for the flock, the chiefest is the flesh and blood of the Lord Jesus.  This is His own divine declaration: For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.” – John 6:55.  And every communication of grace to the soul out of the fulness of Christ, every promise applied with a divine power to the heart, every truth which drops with heavenly savor, every season of encouragement; in a word, every part of God’s Word which the soul can eat and feed upon is spiritual pasture.  Thus the prophet found it of old: “Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O LORD God of hosts.” – Jeremiah 15:16.
