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. Have you ever made a promise you really intended to keep, but them just crumbled under the enormity of the task? I have to admit, I have more times than I’d like to remember, actually. Peter did it, too.
  3. Scripture
    1. John 13:36-38
    2. Simon Peter: Lord, where are You going?

Jesus: Peter, you cannot come with Me now, but later you will join Me.

Peter: Why can’t I go now? I’ll give my life for You!

Jesus: Will you really give your life for Me? I tell you the truth: you will deny Me three times before the rooster crows.
