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. I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s and you saw peace signs everywhere. Technology brought the Viet Nam War into our living rooms for the first time in history and we heard the daily body count from across the sea. Everyone longed for peace.
  3. Scripture
    1. John 20:20-21
    2. Jesus: May each one of you be at peace.

As He was speaking, He revealed the wounds in His hands and side. The disciples began to celebrate as it sank in that they were really seeing the Lord.

Jesus: I give you the gift of peace. In the same way the Father sent Me, I am now sending you.

      3. The world opposes us and tries to turn us to their ways
      4. When we don’t they do everything they can to destroy us

      2. Peace with ourselves and with God
      3. Freedom from the guilt that plagues us because of estrangement from God in our wickedness
      4. Doesn’t mean we’re murderers or robbers
        1. Although, Jesus says hate means murder
