Other Sheep

Jn 10:16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.

 Sometimes I like to use my imagination.  This verse can me so many things.  It is most likely referring to the gentiles in the world – all the people who are not of Jewish origin.  But it could also mean some of God’s creations in other galaxies.  We have God in too small a box if we limit Him to just our known world.  It makes sense to me that He created much more.  I’m sure He created others in His own Image at other places.   I wonder if they, like our human race, disobeyed His first command and allowed sin to separate them from Him.  Jesus might be implying this.  I wonder if He had to go elsewhere and stand in place of the sins of others.  Interesting question.  I would appreciate comments on this.  Mostly remember, God is bigger than even our wildest imaginations could think.
