Who knows me completely?

I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me..
[John 10:14]

I know that there would had been a situation in life when we would have asked this question to ourselves... Who knows me? Who knows me, this is a important question for us, because of the way we link us to this world and people who stay around us. We value us by the people who knows us. If i have more people knowing me we feel proud.

In this world, we feel we have an existence if we have a value in others eyes. We usually map ourselves and our value based on what others think and talk about us, or who all knows and loves us. There is nothing wrong in this attitude, if we take our life as our life and other people around us as a valuable asset whose views and response can change our attitude. We had been born in this attitude from birth. To a large extent what we see around us make us how we think and act now. During all these times we tend to loose our actual and genuine value, which has to be not seen from the eyes of people around us or our friends, or our families, but from the eyes of the one who had created us.

For to You is Born.. A Savior

For to you is born this day in the town of David a Savior, Who is Christ (the Messiah) the Lord!
[Luke 2:11]

The story behind this verse is that, after the birth of baby Jesus, an angel come to the shephard and that angel start telling them the news of the birth of baby Jesus. This verse is what the angel said to the shephards to convey the news. Bible (New Testament) highlights that shepherds were the first who were told about the birth of Jesus. There are two thing that is highlighted in this context along with the verse highlighted in the post. One of it is "Shepherds got the Good News First" and second is "For to You is Born this Day". If we link these words from verse Luke 2:8-11, it can be read as:

He Calls His Own.. and they Follow

The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice.
[John 10:3-4]

When our parents call we respond immediately and reach them if we are far at that moment. If my friends call our for a gathering at home, we make sure to be there at the gathering time. When people who know us call us aloud in the midst of a gathering we usually tend to recognize that voice and will follow to that place. It does not matter where the call is from, if we make to that place or individual... we finally tend to get mingled with them and the their environment. This is very common for us as we know this world and its rules and scenarios.
