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. Has anyone ever told you a story that just seemed too incredible to be true? We’ve all heard those before. Put yourself in Philip’s place as he listened to Jesus’ words at that last Passover supper.
  3. Scripture
    1. John 14:9-12
    2. Jesus (to Philip): I have lived with you all this time, and you still don’t know who I am? If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father. How can you keep asking to see the Father? Don’t you believe Me when I say I abide in the Father and the Father dwells in Me? I’m not making this up as I go along. The Father has given Me these truths that I have been speaking to you, and He empowers all My actions. Accept these truths: I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me. If you have trouble believing based on My words, believe because of the things I have done. I tell you the truth: whoever believes in Me will be able to do what I have done, but they will do even greater things, because I will return to be with the Father.
  4. Devotional
    1. My father-in-law was an insurance claims manager for many years. Every once in awhile he would bring home a claim story that just sounded too incredible to be true.
      1. Working on the roof
      2. Slipped on the shingles
      3. Hit the ladder and tool box
      4. The tool box hit the chimney and ladder fell back against the chimney
      5. No ladder and fell off the roof
      6. Ladder broke the chimney
      7. Bricks fell on the man’s head
      8. Sounds like Wile E. Coyote
    2. As Jesus closes His ministry and speaks to His disciples, must have sounded much like that story
      1. Going where you can’t go
      2. You’ll look for me but you won’t find me
      3. Soon you’ll see me again and then you won’t see me
      4. I’ll leave but I’ll be with you
      5. My Father and I are one
      6. If you’ve seen Me, you’ve seen My Father
    3. How do you put all this together?
      1. Hide-and-seek?; you’ll look but you won’t find me; I’ll leave but come back
      2. Father and Son twins?
      3. This stuff sounds about as crazy as the story of the man fixing his roof
      4. But He says, “I’m not making this stuff up as I go along.”
      5. My father-in-law had to investigate the circumstances surrounding the man on the roof injuries and discovered they were true
      6. When we investigate Jesus’ words by looking into God’s word, we find His words are true.
    4. We can believe all He tells us
      1. It was hard for the disciples on the other side of the resurrection
      2. We have the evidence of an empty tomb to tell us Jesus is who He said He is
      3. He and the Father are One
      4. He invites us to believe in Him and be empowered to live transformed lives as He makes us more like Him each day
