My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
Consider what Jesus is saying. Christians can actually hear the voice of God, know His will and follow Him. The statement is not directed to just a few sheep like the paid professionals but to all of His sheep. Every Christian can hear the voice of God, know His will and follow Him. That reality has huge consequences for both individual believers and churches as they seek to better understand God's will for their lives.
