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. There are few true monarchies any more. Most are democracies with a monarch as a head of state, like in Great Britain or Monaco. But we are fascinated by their ancestry, who is next in line for the throne, the hidden secrets of the royal family. We love stories about the palace, don’t we?
  3. Scripture
    1. John 8:34-36
    2. Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for my word. I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father.
  4. Devotional
    1. Even in America, we get a lot of buzz about Prince William and Kate. They have revitalized the monarchy in Great Britain in the last few years. Every generation of the monarchy, tracing its history back to Egbert of Wessex reign about 800, looks for that first born son to rule as king of the united empire.
      1. See the authority used wisely and foolishly
      2. Always in the news
      3. People are interested in their lives because their lives influence them in a direct way
      4. Much more so in the past than today, but still they play an important role in the politics of the nation as the head of state for the country
    2. Everyone keeps up with the descendants
      1. Who is next in line if something happens to William?
      2. What if both he and his brother died at or near the same time?
      3. Who is next in line for the throne?
      4. What is their character and how will they lead?
      5. Not so anxious for Charles to take the throne, but excited for William to lead because of his appeal to the common people.
    3. King carries tremendous weight in a monarchy
      1. We don’t understand it in our democracy
      2. We elect representatives to write and execute our laws on our behalf
      3. True monarchies have a king that decides it all. The king rules.
      4. He determines who lives and dies and how people progress between those two points of birth and death
      5. Generally the kingdom passes down to the heir unless overthrown in battle or he abdicates the throne for personal or political reasons
    4. Those listening to Jesus thought they could stand on their pedigree, their ancestry as descendants of Abraham to do as they please just as a prince might extend his rights because of his position to the throne.
      1. Jesus stops their argument
      2. Commands come from the real King of kings, creator
      3. Jesus, His son has power they do not have because they are only human, not divine
    5. The question is who is your father? God or Abraham? Heavenly or earthly? Divine or human? Who do you follow? Your choice
  5. 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."
