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. What happens when you ignore the boss? You might never see the boss in a large corporation, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore what he says. You job will be on the line if you do. So how does that relate to our spiritual life?
  3. Scripture
    1. John 12:44-50
    2. Jesus (crying out before the people): Anyone who believes in Me is not placing his faith in Me, but in the One who sent Me here. If one sees Me, he sees the One who sent Me. I am here to bring light in this world, freeing everyone who believes in Me from the darkness that blinds him. If anyone listening to My teachings chooses to ignore them, so be it: I have come to liberate the world, not to judge it. However, those who reject Me and My teachings will be judged: in the last day, My words will be their judge because I am not speaking of My own volition and from My own authority. The Father who sent Me has commanded Me what to say and speak. I know His command is eternal life, so every word I utter originates in Him.
  4. Devotional
    1. As I’ve mentioned several times during my podcasts, I served in the Army for thirty years.
      1. Armed Forces are part of the Executive Branch of the government under the Constitution
      2. Keep the borders of our nation safe and prosecute conflicts directed by the President and approved by Congress
      3. President is the Commander-in-Chief, the boss
      4. Served under six: Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush
    2. Met Rosalynn Carter and George W. Bush, but never met any of the other presidents or their wives before or after they were in office
      1. Why bring that up?
      2. All of those presidents who a lot of Executive Orders that applied to service members
      3. Many of those Executive Orders affected our behavior, what we could or could not do both in battle and in peacetime environments
      4. Ignoring or disobeying any of those orders could mean stiff administrative actions, discharge, hefty fines or imprisonment
      5. I had to obey all those orders yet I only saw one of those Commanders-in-Chief in person and that was during the Army’s response to Hurricane Katrina and then only long enough for President Bush to shake my hand and say, “Keep up the good work, Colonel Agee.” The same thing he said to several others crowded in that room with him that day.
    3. We obey our bosses who we may never see
      1. Why is it so hard to obey the God who loves us so much He came to earth in the flesh to live with us?
      2. Why is it so hard to listen to what He says and understand His commands are for our good?
      3. Why can we not figure out that failing to obey God carries consequences far worse than failing to obey an earthly employer?
      4. Time to meditate on just Who we should listen to now isn’t it?
