Another Fold

 

Another Fold
By Christine Hare Tate
~

Be wary of the voices
Which beckon you today,
Calling from another fold
To lead His sheep away.

His sheep know His voice
They’re careful not to go
Wandering in pastures where
Greener grass may grow.

His sheep graze in peace
When others find no rest,
They know He is their shepherd
And He alone knows best.

There are unfamiliar sounds
That His sheep will not heed;
They recognize His calling
And follow as He leads.

If you want to be sure
His voice directs you,
Spend time in His presence;
That’s what God’s sheep do!

~

‘The gatekeeper opens the gate and the sheep hear his voice and come to him. He calls his sheep by name and leads them out. After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they recognize his voice. They won’t follow a stranger; they will run from him because they don’t know his voice.’
[John 10:1-5]
