Dan Wooldridge: Six Life-Changing Promises (John 10:1-10)
Dan Wooldridge, the senior pastor of Crestview Baptist Church in Georgetown, Texas, was drawn to reconsider John 10 after hearing Sanj Kalra, Ravi Zacharias’ “walking stick,” testify to how that passage changed his life. In this passage, Jesus compared himself to a shepherd leading sheep. It is a passage that inspired numerous songs of the Christian faith. Wooldridge details six promises found in John 10:1-10 that culminate in the good news of salvation.
Demonstrating the influence of Jesus’ shepherd metaphor on Christian songs, Wooldridge ends by singing a spiritual.
This sermon was livestreamed on June 7, 2020, for the morning worship service of Crestview Baptist Church in Georgetown. An outline for this sermon is available here.
