Jesus has a plan that is so much bigger than us. He loves and saves people we know well, andHe loves and saves people we are ignorant of; He loves and saves people welike, and He loves and saves people we can’t stand. His flock includes people who are radicallydifferent from us, and He refers to them as “other sheep,” belonging to Him,part of one flock with one shepherd. Wemust ask ourselves the same question the disciples had to ask: are we going tomake this a problem, or are we going to make this a passion? Our level of enthusiasm for seeing “othersheep” come into His flock is one reflection of our level of Christ-likeness –we are called to love what he loves!
