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. Two languages = bilingual; three languages = trilingual; one language = American
  3. Scripture
    1. John 8:42-27)
    2. Jesus: I come from the one True God, and I’m not here on My own. He sent Me on a mission. If God were your Father, you would know that and would love Me. You don’t even understand what I’m saying. Do you? Why not? It is because You cannot stand to hear My voice. You are just like your true father, the devil; and you spend your time pursuing the things your father loves. He started out as a killer, and he cannot tolerate truth because he is void of anything true. At the core of his character, he is a liar; everything he speaks originates in these lies because he is the father of lies. So when I speak truth, you don’t believe Me. If I speak the truth, why don’t you believe Me? If you belong to God’s family, then why can’t you hear God speak? The answer is clear; you are not in God’s family. I speak truth, and you don’t believe Me. Can any of you convict Me of sin?
  4. Devotional
    1. I’ve lived in San Antonio, Texas for almost 18 years. Almost 65% of the population is hispanic so Spanish is a prevalent language in the city and surrounding area. In fact, in many retail stores in the area, you must be bilingual to work there. This isn’t a discussion about whether that is good or bad, right or wrong, just a fact of when and where I live today.
      1. Despite living here almost 18 years i don’t speak and understand very little Spanish
      2. I hear it everywhere. I see it everywhere, but I just don’t get it.
    2. Contrast with my living in Germany for just three years while I was in the service.
      1. Lived on the economy, not on a military installation
      2. Landlords didn’t speak English
      3. Spoke and wrote passable German within a few months and fairly fluent before we left country; primary language for my four year old
    3. Thought about those two difference in understanding languages when I read Jesus’ words
      1. I wanted to learn German
      2. Although it would be helpful, my heart isn’t into learning Spanish
      3. I took the time and energy to learn the language and listen to those around me; I asked questions when I didn’t understand
      4. I mostly ignore the Spanish I hear around me unless I need to hear something specific from someone who doesn’t speak English; I seldom ask questions about words or phrases
    4. Same is true in a sense with spiritual language
      1. Do we listen to the language God speaks to us through His words?
        1. Love
        2. Grace
        3. Mercy
      2. Or do we ignore it because we’re just not interested in know what He is saying, much the way I treat the Spanish I hear around me
      3. So the issue at hand. There are two spiritual languages. One comes from God, who speaks only the truth, the other comes from the father of lies. Listen again to the questions and comments Jesus had for the Jews around Him that day. They are just as applicable to us.
      4. I come from the one True God, and I’m not here on My own. He sent Me on a mission. If God were your Father, you would know that and would love Me. You don’t even understand what I’m saying. Do you? Why not? It is because You cannot stand to hear My voice. You are just like your true father, the devil; and you spend your time pursuing the things your father loves. He started out as a killer, and he cannot tolerate truth because he is void of anything true. At the core of his character, he is a liar; everything he speaks originates in these lies because he is the father of lies. So when I speak truth, you don’t believe Me. If I speak the truth, why don’t you believe Me? If you belong to God’s family, then why can’t you hear God speak? The answer is clear; you are not in God’s family. I speak truth, and you don’t believe Me. Can any of you convict Me of sin?
    5. Can you hear His voice and understand His words? If not, you might want to check the language you’re speaking.
  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."
