Season 3, Episode 20: I Will Find You: Behind the Scenes with Detective Lieutenant Joe Kenda

Season #3

Have you ever wondered what the most dangerous creature on earth is? According to Joe Kenda, it’s us! On the flip side, who can work together on a mission to help our communities be places where we feel safe and people who have been affected by crime know they will get the support they need? It’s us.

Our book this week is “I Will Find You” by one of my favorite true crime TV personalities, Detective Joe Kenda, so you’re going to get some great information AND inspiration from this episode. I know how much you all love behind the scenes stories, and that’s exactly what this is. This is where he tells the stories that didn’t make it on his super popular TV show. 

And we will talk about John 10:3-4: “The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep recognize his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they know his voice.”

I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that most of us haven’t spent much time around sheep. I know I haven’t. But I do have a dog. And my dog certainly knows my voice and will (mostly) do what I tell him. He knows my voice and he trusts me, so he isn’t afraid to follow my commands.

I wish I always had that level of trust when I hear God talking to me, don’t you? I guess that’s our version of obedience school! Which my dog has been to twice. Just saying - it never hurts to refresh our training.

Let’s all go back to obedience school! Let’s take this next week to read more of John chapter 10 and really meditate on verses 3 and 4. We can ask God to show us areas that He wants to lead us in and then - this next step is crucial - we need to FOLLOW HIM.
