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. Mob rule is a scary thing. It’s easy to get trapped in it. But dangerous when you let it rule you.
  3. Scripture
    1. John 19:11
    2. Jesus: Any authority you have over Me comes from above, not from your political position. Because of this, the one who handed Me to you is guilty of the greater sin.
  4. Devotional
    1. I have to admit, on more than one occasion, I’ve just given in to the crowd.
      1. I was in charge
      2. I knew in my heart what should be done
      3. I knew the consequences that would take place if I let the crowd rule and gave in to their demands
      4. The crowd was small, my platoon or my staff or the section I was leading at the time
      5. They were tired or hungry or wanted to stop or do something I knew wouldn’t have the outcome we needed
      6. I gave in to their demand
      7. It didn’t turn out well
      8. Mission wasn’t accomplished
      9. Results were poor
      10. All of us embarrassed
    2. Pilate was the governor
      1. Had the authority to release Jesus
      2. Knew what was right
      3. Knew the consequences of giving Jesus over to this mob
      4. An innocent man would die because of his failure to stand up for what was right
      5. Wife even warned him of the failure in justice
      6. Pilate listened to the crowd instead of his conscience
      7. Gave a glimmer of hope when he offered Barabas in place of Jesus
    3. It’s easy to follow the crowd
      1. Jesus told us broad the way that leads to destruction, though
      2. Easy to follow the crowd that leads to nowhere
      3. Harder to follow the narrow path that leads to righteousness
      4. Harder to stand for what is right and just and holy
      5. Like salmon swimming upstream against the current
      6. Everyone else will push against you trying to turn you around
      7. But when you know what is right it is worth maintaining the course
      8. In the end you will hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
