John Chapter 10 : 1-10 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 1 "Most certainly, I tell you, one who doesn't enter by the door into the sheep fold, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
  • 2 But one who enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
  • 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.
  • 4 Whenever he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.
  • 5 They will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him; for they don't know the voice of strangers."
  • 6 Jesus spoke this parable to them, but they didn't understand what he was telling them.
  • 7 Jesus therefore said to them again, "Most certainly, I tell you, I am the sheep's door.
  • 8 All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep didn't listen to them.
  • 9 I am the door. If anyone enters in by me, he will be saved, and will go in and go out, and will find pasture.
  • 10 The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.
  • Open English Bible [OEB]
  • 1 In truth I tell you, whoever does not go into the sheepfold through the door, but climbs up at some other place, that person is a thief and a robber;
  • 2 but the person who goes in through the door is shepherd to the sheep.
  • 3 For him the watchman opens the door; and the sheep listen to his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.
  • 4 When he has brought them all out, he walks in front of them, and his sheep follow him, because they know his voice.
  • 5 They will not follow a stranger, but will run away from him; because they do not know a stranger’s voice.”
  • 6 This was the allegory that Jesus told them, but they did not understand of what he was speaking.
  • 7 So he continued, “In truth I tell you, I am the door for the sheep.
  • 8 All who came before me were thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not listen to them.
  • 9 I am the door; he who goes in through me will be safe, and he will go in and out and find pasture.
  • 10 The thief comes only to steal, to kill, and to destroy; I have come so that they may have life, and may have it in greater fullness.

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obiendience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
