[ShBride 19] Other Sheep

Shiite Muslims – a people God is pursuing to be Jesus’ Bride

The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out...
and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.

And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice.
So there will be one flock, one shepherd.
John 10:3b-4b, 16 ESV

A group of us worshipped Jesus in the local language of some Shiites and gathered afterwards for some tea and cake. It was then that we saw her. She was ahead of us in the line on our way to get some tea and cake. Turning her face towards us she said, "Hello, welcome!"

We began talking together and I noticed a radiance about her, this precious Shiite woman who has been following Jesus for several years. She had a peace that is hard to put into words, a serious intentionality to her life that made me just want to hang around her.

She reached in her purse and pulled out a picture. "I want to show you my family," she said. "I have been praying for them back in Iran and now Jesus is calling them one by one, by name. Look!" she pointed to the photograph. "Here is my brother and his wife visiting a church! Jesus is speaking to them and he told them to go there."

She smiled, her face betraying her utter confidence in our Good Shepherd to rescue her family members and bring them into his sheepfold. Jesus says the sheep not yet in this fold are HIS sheep. He says he will bring them in - he says he MUST do it - and that they will listen to his voice and be one flock with one shepherd!

Friend of His Shiite Bride, let's pray that more Shiites hear the voice of our Good Shepherd! Pray that more and more Shiite families come to Jesus in many lands - from Iran and Iraq, to Lebanon and Bahrain, to Afghanistan and Pakistan. May those lands be covered with sheep who know their shepherd's voice, with millions of Shiite families who love to listen to their shepherd's voice and follow him. Together, let's walk in his ways.
