Homily by Fr. Andy Ilustre
The Good Shepherd is willing to lay down His own life for the sheep. We learn how the shepherd’s voice identifies which sheep belongs to the shepherd.
Our identity as His sheep is just as clearly demonstrated in what we do. Our job is to follow Him, and the only way we can follow Him is to listen to His voice. The way we act tells the world who Jesus is. The things we do and say tell the world who Jesus is, and also the things we do and say tell the world who we are, and whose voice we obey.
When we hear Him and follow Him, Jesus claims us as His own. He does more than call to us, He does more than know us by name. He gives us eternal life and a promise that no one can snatch us out of His hand.
OUR JOB IS TO FOLLOW HIM.
