Day: Easter 4C
Lectionary Passage: John 10:22-30
Scripture Focus: John 10:27
Object: Cell phone with various ring tones
I’ve got my cell phone with me today. One of the things that I love about my phone is that I can have a different ring tone for everyone who calls. So, I don’t even have to pick up the phone to know who is calling. Like this one… (give two or three examples of callers and play the ring tone – have fun with it!). Having different ring tones for different people makes it really easy to know who’s calling!
Jesus says kind of the same thing in our story today. He’s not talking about cell phone, but he does say that his followers know his voice and follow him. And that’s good news because Jesus gives all his followers eternal life. That means that Jesus wants to save us and bring us up to Heaven with him one day. It’s a good thing we know the voice of Jesus!
Let’s pray: God, thanks for sending your Son Jesus Christ. He calls us all to follow him and when we hear his voice and follow then we get amazing blessings from you. Amen.
