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. Secrets are something Jesus reached inside others and made known. He didn’t seem to have any Himself. Maybe we should follow suit.
  3. Scripture
    1. John 18:20-21
    2. Jesus: I have spoken in public where the world can hear, always teaching in the synagogue and in the temple where the Jewish people gather. I have never spoken in secret. So why would you need to interrogate Me? Many have heard Me teach. Why don’t you question them? They know what I have taught.
  4. Devotional
    1. I’ve taken several oaths in my life.
      1. As an Army officer to support and defend the Constitution
      2. To my wife
      3. In court, to tell the truth
      4. In various legal situations attesting to my identity or the truth of some legal document
      5. All those oaths are public record or can be
    2. I’ve never belonged to one of those secret societies. And I don’t want to.
      1. Oaths behind closed doors.
      2. Teachings that you must reach certain levels before you are allowed to hear what the next level knows
      3. Secrets about beliefs and activities
      4. Secrets about loyalties and how deep those loyalties extend
    3. That’s what I like about Jesus’ testimony to the high priest
      1. Wasn’t trying to be flippant
      2. Wasn’t trying to be rude or arrogant
      3. Just stating fact
      4. Everything He did was in the open for all to see
      5. Even His prayers were open enough for His disciples to overhear and record them for us later in the gospels
    4. Beware of those religions that hide behind secrets
      1. Jesus had no secrets
      2. Everything He did, He did in the open for all to hear
      3. I think He tells us to do the same
      4. We have nothing to hide when we follow His command and His example
      5. It’s true many have died because of His teaching, but so did He
    5. What did He teach that cost His life?
      1. God wants a personal relationship with each of us
      2. Only one relationship never ends, think about it
      3. Everyone you enter into a relationship with will die or move or things change that change the relationship
      4. Every relationship with anything or anyone terrestrial will end
      5. Only a relationship with God can last
      6. Only He is immortal and relates with our immortal soul
