Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 169

169. “I have other sheep that are not of this pen” (John 10:16).

It seems likely that Jesus is referencing the Gentiles here, but regardless of who the “other pen” is, the important point is that there is one. We are never God’s only expression. Our ways are never the only acceptable versions. While Jesus has made clear that He alone is the path to the Father, there are many paths to Him. When we decide that our way is the only way, we close ourselves to the amazing work Jesus may be doing in others. We draw lines in the proverbial sand and separate ourselves from truth that would broaden our understanding. We are not the only pen and thankfully no other group is either.
