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. Do you like magic shows? I’m always fascinated by them and like to see if I can catch the magician in some mistake that reveals his secrets. 2,000 years ago, that was no magic show at Lazarus’ tomb, though
  3. Scripture
    1. John 11:43-44
    2. After these words, He called out in a thunderous voice.

Jesus: Lazarus, come out!

Then, the man who was dead walked out of his tomb bound from head to toe in a burial shroud.

Jesus: Untie him, and let him go.

  1. Devotional
    1. A couple of months ago, I saw the Illusionists. It’s a group of magicians that do a variety of tricks on stage that really boggle the mind.
      1. A couple of the acts were pretty weird, like running sharp objects through his body. I didn’t care so much for that.
      2. Escape from a water chamber similar to Houdini’s water chamber, but without the straightjacket
      3. One that really fascinated me was a man who just manipulated playing cards.
        1. Hidden in pockets
        2. Appeared from thin air
        3. Thousands of cards
    2. We enjoy watching things we can’t figure out
      1. Enjoy trying to catch the magician in his tricks
      2. Try to find the wires or hidden pockets or figure out the strange technology they used to fool you into thinking something magical has happened
      3. Their skills are sometimes incredible
    3. 2,000 years ago those around the tomb didn’t see a magic trick
      1. No incantation
      2. No technology, wires, or mirrors
      3. No double to take Lazarus’ place
      4. Jesus prayed, thanked His Father for hearing His prayer
      5. Called in a loud voice
    4. The dead man walked out of the tomb bound from head to toe in a burial shroud
      1. Jesus brought life into a dead body
      2. Arms bound to sides
      3. Legs bound together
      4. Enough life to get up, walk out of the tomb wrapped from head to toe, probably hopped out
      5. Took away the stench of death, too
      6. Untie him, and let him go.
      7. Free him from the shroud as I freed him from death
      8. No magic, just power over death
