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. How important is the criteria you use to make decisions, to complete projects, or to make judgments? I hope you said pretty important. If you don’t think so, just listen.
  3. Scripture
    1. John 8:14-18
    2. Jesus: Even if I am making bold claims about Myself—who I am, what I have come to do—I am speaking the truth. You see, I know where I came from and where I will go when I am done here. You know neither where I come from nor where I will go. You spend your time judging by the wrong criteria, by human standards; but I am not here to judge anyone. If I were to judge, then My judgment would be based on truth; but I would not judge anyone alone. I act in harmony with the One who sent Me. Your law states that if the testimonies of two witnesses agree, their testimony is true. Well, I testify about Myself, and so does the Father who sent Me here.
  4. Devotional
    1. Have you ever gone through a bunch of papers or files or closets or drawers looking for something only to find out you were looking for the wrong thing. I have to admit, I’ve done that more than once in my lifetime. In fact, I seem to do it a lot more often that I like. What a waste of time, right?
      1. Look for the receipt from a particular company only to find out it’s the wrong company
      2. Look for an address only to find it’s the wrong person
      3. Look for a tool only to find out it’s the wrong tool for the job
    2. Justice system is sometimes like that
      1. Every crime has a number of elements that must be proven to find a person guilty of that crime.
      2. Unless all are proven beyond a reasonable doubt, the jury must find not guilty
      3. Doesn’t mean innocent, but doesn’t meet the criteria for guilty verdict
      4. We get frustrated or angry at verdicts we think are unjust, but those are the criteria we have established to try to keep innocent people from being incarcerated
    3. Jesus’ judgments are perfect
      1. Not based on man’s laws
      2. Based on God’s perfect love
      3. Excludes all evil from the Father’s presence maintains His holiness
      4. Perfect judge, perfect accuser, perfect advocate
      5. He made the rules
      6. We perverted them
      7. He judges with grace, mercy, and love
      8. We judge with vengeance, revenge, and at best justice
    4. Time to follow the perfect One who will judge us at the end of time; He didn’t come to condemn but to save
