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. Perfectionists have a hard time determining when they are done with a project. Something always needs a little more work before it’s ready to go public. Not so with the perfect man.
  3. Scripture
    1. John 19:30
    2. Jesus: It is finished!
  4. Devotional
    1. I’m not a terrible artist, but I don’t haven’t painted in a while and when I pick up the hobby, I don’t do it very long at a time.
      1. I have a problem
      2. I start working on a painting and don’t know when to stop
      3. Always one more thing I can do better
      4. Make one more correction
      5. Finally end up with a hodge-podge of corrections that make the whole thing a mess
    2. Same with some other hobbies and projects
      1. Want everything to be perfect but can never get there
      2. Never know when to stop and say this is right, this is done
      3. Need it to be just a little better
      4. Need one more thing to make it right
      5. Want things to be a exactly right but in our flawed state we don’t really know what perfect looks like because we’re not perfect
    3. Jesus had a job to do
      1. Share the message of God’s love
      2. Tell of the reconciliation He wanted with His highest creation
      3. Came to pay the penalty for the sins we committed
      4. God told us the penalty for sin was blood spilled; death
    4. Moses gave the Israelites the laws concerning blood sacrifices to atone for sins
      1. Every year sacrifices made
      2. Scapegoat took on the sins of the community as representation of their repentance
      3. Blood spilled and sacrifice made
    5. Jesus came
      1. He became the scapegoat for us
      2. Penalty for sins committed still death; sacrifice; spilling of blood
      3. But the scapegoat was imperfect; had to return every year and do it again
      4. Jesus didn’t sin; His was the blood of man, but a perfect, sinless man
      5. He intervened as man to God and God to man and sacrificed Himself for our sin
      6. The perfect sacrifice spilled His blood to atone for our sins
    6. Jesus knew what He came to do
      1. He knew what the outcome was to be
      2. He took all the punishment and abuse we could dish out
      3. With His last breath He lifted His brush from the canvas of humanity’s future
      4. It is finish - a perfect plan of salvation
