A daily devotional through the recorded words Jesus spoke while He walked alongside us. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com.

 

  1. Thanks for joining me today for "A Little Walk with God." I'm your host Richard Agee.
  2. Do you ever take what we know about life in the Spirit for granted? Do you ever even think about life in the Spirit and what it’s all about? Nicodemus got a pretty good lesson one day. We can learn a lot from what Jesus said to him that day.
  3. Scripture
    1. John 3:10-15
    2. Jesus: Your responsibility is to instruct Israel in matters of faith, but you do not comprehend the necessity of life in the Spirit? I tell you the truth: we speak about the things we know, and we give evidence about the things we have seen, and you choose to reject the truth of our witness. If you do not believe when I talk to you about ordinary, earthly realities, then heavenly realities will certainly elude you. No one has ever journeyed to heaven above except the One who has come down from heaven—the Son of Man, who is of heaven. Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness. In the same way, the Son of Man must be lifted up; then all those who believe in Him will experience everlasting life.
  1. Devotional
    1. Put yourself in Nicodemus place 2,000 years ago. What would you think about the conversation you were having with Jesus? Do you ever take what we know about life in the Spirit for granted? Do you ever even think about life in the Spirit and what it’s all about?His Spirit came to live in us after His departure.
    2. Important concept Jesus talked about often in His ministry.
      1. The promise He gave His disciples and the power He gave them to live the way He wanted them to live
      2. Before Jesus left He talked a lot about what God’s spirit would do for us and in us, so the conversation He begins with Nicodemus is important
      1. But Nicodemus, like many, chose to reject the truth Jesus spoke.
        1. Responsible to teach faith - a rabbi
        2. Didn’t understand the necessity of life in the spirit.
        3. We cannot live the life Jesus wants us to live apart from His spirit in us
        4. It takes faith and acceptance of His guidance, lordship in our life
      1. World doesn’t agree
        1. Self made man
        2. What’s in it for me
        3. What do I gain
        4. Selfish motive is the world’s answer
        5. Servanthood is Jesus’ goal
    1. Nicodemus came to learn and based on later events in his life it appears he learned well the lessons of life in the Spirit. History gives credence to His coming to Christ and being one of the dissenters in His trial and crucifixion. He may have been in the upper room on the day of Pentecost. He learned his lessons
    2. The question for you and me, will we learn from the Master? Will we believe the evidence of His words and His actions? Will we believe in Him so we may gain the everlasting life He promises? It’s up to you.
  2. If you want to learn more about my church, you can find us at SAF.church. If you like the devotional, share it with someone. If you don't, tell me. I hope you’ll join me again tomorrow for "A Little Walk with God."
