I Am the Door of the Sheep

John 10:1-10

At the end of the account of Jesus healing a man who was born blind, the Pharisees ask Jesus if they are also blind (spiritually). Jesus responds that they are not blind because they say “We see (understand).” Then he addresses them, while others listen, with his voice of certainty and authority, “Truly, truly, I say to you.” As always, His words are for us as well.
