John Chapter 10 : 11-20 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
  • 12 He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who doesn't own the sheep, sees the wolf coming, leaves the sheep, and flees. The wolf snatches the sheep, and scatters them.
  • 13 The hired hand flees because he is a hired hand, and doesn't care for the sheep.
  • 14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own, and I'm known by my own;
  • 15 even as the Father knows me, and I know the Father. I lay down my life for the sheep.
  • 16 I have other sheep, which are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will hear my voice. They will become one flock with one shepherd.
  • 17 Therefore the Father loves me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again.
  • 18 No one takes it away from me, but I lay it down by myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. I received this commandment from my Father."
  • 19 Therefore a division arose again among the Jews because of these words.
  • 20 Many of them said, "He has a demon, and is insane! Why do you listen to him?"

  • 11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep.
  • 12 The hired man who is not a shepherd, and who does not own the sheep, when he sees a wolf coming, leaves them and runs away; then the wolf seizes them, and scatters the flock.
  • 13 He does this because he is only a hired man and does not care about the sheep.
  • 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know my sheep, and my sheep know me –
  • 15 Just as the Father knows me and I know the Father – and I lay down my life for the sheep.
  • 16 I have other sheep besides, which do not belong to this fold; I must lead them also, and they will listen to my voice; and they will become one flock under one shepherd.
  • 17 This is why the Father loves me, because I lay down my life – to receive it again.
  • 18 No one took it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to receive it again. This is the command which I received from my Father.”
  • 19 In consequence of these words a difference of opinion again arose among the people.
  • 20 Many of them said, “He is possessed by a demon and is mad; why do you listen to him?”

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.
