A daily devotional through the recorded words Jesus spoke while He walked alongside us. Our website

  1. Thanks for joining me today for "A Little Walk with God." I'm your host Richard Agee.
  2. Today’s words remind me of the pictures I’ve seen of those high end nightclubs. I’ll tell you how in just a moment.
  3. Scripture
    1. Revelation 22:14-15
    2. Jesus: Blessed are those who wash their garments. In the end, they have rightful access to the tree of life and will enter the city through its gates. 15 The dogs, the sorcerers, those who commit immoral acts, the murderers, the idolaters, and all who love and practice deception must remain outside the gates for all eternity.
  4. Devotional
    1. I’ve never been to a club, but if the most popular are anything like depicted on TV shows and some documentaries, they remind me of these words of Jesus.
      1. Someone larger than the average NFL linebacker stands at the door
      2. A line stretches around the corner filled with people wanting to party
      3. The linebacker keeps the number of people inside just below the maximum allowed by the fire marshall
      4. Some of the more attractive or that look like special partiers are pulled out of line to enter ahead of the crowd
      5. Anyone the linebacker thinks wouldn’t add to the atmosphere of the party inside is barred from entering the door
    2. Heaven will be more selective than those nightclubs
      1. At the end of time there will be a judgment
      2. Those who believe in Jesus will have their names written in the Book of Life, authorization for entry
      3. Those not found worthy because of their unrepentant heart, their unforgiven sin will be barred from entry
      4. Jesus gives us a short list of the kinds of characters barred
        1. The dogs,
        2. the sorcerers,
        3. those who commit immoral acts,
        4. the murderers,
        5. the idolaters,
        6. all who love and practice deception
    3. Jesus has something much better than the NFL linebacker
      1. Remember the Garden of Eden
      2. Angel blocked the entrance to keep Adam and Eve from returning
      3. Pillar of fire blocked the Egyptian army from reaching the Israelites before they reached the Red Sea
      4. Jesus has a legion of angels at His disposal to block the unforgiven from the entrance
    4. Those who enter will live eternally without evil destroying the kingdom
      1. All evil banished
      2. All will be finally separated from the broken world in which we live
      3. All there will be surrounded by nothing but good
      4. No tears, no dying, no evil
      5. Only God’s presence, His holiness, His grace
