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. They tell us home invasion is on the rise. What have you done to prepare?
  3. Scripture
    1. Revelation 16:15
    2. A Voice: See, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the person who watches and waits, dressed and ready to go, so as not to wander about naked, exposed to disgrace.
  4. Devotional
    1. I remember the days when people didn’t lock their doors at night.
      1. Went on vacation once and forgot to lock the door, but really didn’t worry about it
      2. Then started locking the doors when we left but not when we were home
      3. Then started locking the doors at night
      4. Then started putting gates around our communities
      5. Community watch
      6. Now alarms systems, cameras, guns under mattresses
      7. Prepared for thieves that might try to slip through the gate
    2. If we knew thief was coming
      1. We’d be ready
      2. Doors and windows locked
      3. Cameras recording
      4. Police at the door
      5. Valuables secured
      6. Thief wouldn’t have a chance
      7. Captured and arrested
    3. Thief doesn’t come when we are prepared
      1. Comes when least expected
      2. Comes when our guard is down
      3. Comes at his convenience, not ours
    4. Jesus says He will come like a thief in the night
      1. Be ready
      2. Like the Jews prepared for the first passover
      3. Dressed and ready for a journey
      4. Shoes on their feet, staff in their hand
      5. Everything they need to take packed and ready to go
    5. I attended a funeral just this week for a friend
      1. He was getting ready to take his wife to the hospital for surgery the next day
      2. Instead he had a massive stroke and never regained consciousness
      3. We don’t know how long we have
      1. We don’t know when our next breath will be our last
      2. We may live until Jesus returns to take His bride away
      3. We may be victims of a car wreck or some random act of violence or a freak accident or an illness or any number of things
      4. The message is we need to be ready
