16 And I have other sheep, who are not of this flock. I must also call them to lead them out, and they will hear my voice;3 so there will be one flock, and one shepherd. [Other sheep are the Gentiles. First, you are called by Him, if you respond by seeking to learn directly from Him, He will lead you to lose your selfish life on the inward cross of self-denial. To follow Him, you must obey His commands that you hear Him speak to you; He leads you out of darkness to light, out of sin to righteousness, and out of the world with its lusts and desires into His kingdom.]
6 He says, 'It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel; I will also give you for a light to the Gentiles, that you may be my salvation to the ends of the earth.'1
|Isaiah 52:10 |
10 The LORD has made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
