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. Wills are really important. Jesus made a will during His last moments on the cross. Listen to what He said.
  3. Scripture
    1. John 19:26-27
    2. Jesus (to Mary, His mother): Dear woman, this is your son (motioning to the beloved disciple)! (to John, His disciple) This is now your mother.
  4. Devotional
    1. At age 22, I made my first will. My wife had the original and my parents and in-laws both received copies.
      1. Parents and in-laws were a little shocked
      2. Why was I making a will at such a young age
      3. Army wanted every soldier to have a will because we deploy to a conflict at a moment’s notice
      4. Important to let someone know your wishes before you pass away
      5. Avoids family fights over the things you leave behind
      6. Didn’t have much, but told where all of it went
      7. Subsequent wills determined what happened to minor children should both my wife and I die simultaneously or should she precede me in death
      8. I wanted to know who was raising my children and that the values they held were similar to mine
    2. Jesus didn’t have much that we know of in terms of earthly belongings
      1. Mary’s son, but not Joseph’s son
      2. May not have been heir to Joseph’s inheritance since he was not his son
      3. May not have owned anything more than the clothes on His back
      4. Don’t hear of material things Jesus possessed
      5. Talks about teaching and preaching accepting what is offered and staying in homes opened to them. Expect that was His practice as well
    3. In the room where He at the Passover with His disciples gave them His last will and testament
      1. My peace I give you
      2. I leave my legacy of peace with you
      3. I’m preparing a place for you and I’m coming back
    4. On the cross, looks down and sees His mother
      1. May have seen her following at the edge of the crowd as He carried His cross
      2. May have seen her agony and grief
      3. Could not comfort her while the soldiers pushed Him toward Golgotha
      4. Did not want to depart without giving Mary what He had for her
      5. Gave His last will and testament to her
      6. All He could give at that point to keep her from being destitute as a widow in a land that didn’t recognize the importance of women
      7. Mary, treat John as your son. John, treat Mary as your mother. Comfort each other in my absence. Draw strength from each other and care for each other
    5. Wills are important, even to Jesus. They are about taking care of the ones you love.
