Themes: Through Christ, we are able to do more than we could in our own strength, just as Peter worked a miracle in Joppa (Acts 9:36-43). The Lord is our shepherd (Rev 7:9-17); he takes care of all our needs (Ps 23) and offers us eternal life, if we listen to his voice and follow him (Jn 10:22-30).
 –Thomas Oden in Ancient Christian Devotional

"The Lord is my shepherd, 
I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake..."
Acts 9:36-43
Revelation 7:9-17

Commentary on John 10:22-30
“It was winter,” and they were chilled because they were slow to approach that divine fire. For to approach is to believe: the one who believes, approaches; the one who denies, moves away. The soul is not moved by the feet but by the affections. They had become icy cold to the sweetness of loving him, and they burned with the desire of doing him an injury. They were far away, while there beside him. -St. Augustine
