A SEVEN MILE WALK WITH JESUS
What is the greatest need today of individuals in this church and in others? Matter of fact
what is the need of all Christians today? To walk consistently with Jesus! Many times we start out real well, but something
seems to always throw us off track. Here we see two disciples saved, and walking with Jesus. But before they know it they
are at their destination. They have missed the joy of knowing Jesus during their journey. How tragic, but is not the case
with many of us? We go through life’s journey without really knowing who Jesus is. With out having that close relationship
that He wants to share with us. And many of us who call ourselves Christians, will come to life’s end without having
experienced the joys of that close relationship with, and walking with Jesus.

I have came to this pulpit today with a message from God. I have prepared my self the best I
know how to break the bread of life to you. If you leave here lost and wind up in hell before you get home. There will be
no blood on my hands.
Notice verse 32. Is your heart burning now that you have heard the word of God?
There was a preacher visiting a soap factory. As the owner is showing him around the conversation
turns to crime and how bad it has gotten. Then the owner says, “ the gospel that you preach hasn’t done much good.
There is still sin and sinners and they are both getting worst.” “Maybe you preachers just need to quit preaching.
The preacher sees a child playing in the mud. He yells at the child and he stands up, and there is mud all over him, I mean
he is really dirty. Then the preacher says, “the soap that you make is not done a very good job either. There are still
dirty people in the world.
Point-------- Soap is only useful when applied. And so it is with the Gospel.
