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. Do you know what it feels like to long for someone to come home? That’s what Jesus is doing for us.
  3. Scripture
    1. John 17:24-26
    2. Jesus: Father, I long for the time when those You have given Me can join Me in My place so they may witness My glory, which comes from You. You have loved Me before the foundations of the cosmos were laid. Father, You are just; though this corrupt world order does not know You, I do. These followers know that You have sent Me. I have told them about Your nature; and I will continue to speak of Your name in order that Your love, which was poured out on Me, will be in them. And I will also be in them.
  4. Devotional
    1. When I was deployed on several occasions during my military career, I heard my wife talk about her longing for my return.
      1. I stayed incredibly busy during deployments and didn’t have much time to think about home
      2. Also didn’t want to get too distracted because it meant lives if I didn’t do my job well
      3. At home, an empty chair
      4. An empty space that no one could fill but me
      5. Missing sounds and smells and routines that were obvious in my absence
      6. With two children, really missed me and longed for me to return
    2. We are flawed imperfect creatures because sin and death entered the world
      1. Still we long for those we love when they are absent from us
      2. Think of how Jesus feels for those He loves
      3. Loved enough that He Died for us
      4. Loves perfectly
    3. Went to build a new home for us
      1. Longs for us to be with Him eternally
      2. Picture Him standing at the door eagerly waiting for the day He can meet us
      3. Only the Father knows when time will end, but Jesus stands at the edge of heaven waiting to greet us
      4. He wants us to see Him without the blinders that our flawed nature creates
      5. He wants us to know Him without the limitations we have because of our fallen nature
      6. He longs to have us join Him in His place where all evil is dispelled and we are always in the light of His glory
      7. He longs for us to see the place He has built for us to spend eternity with Him
