"I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, God’s dwelling is with the  human  race.  He will dwell with them and they will be his people  and God himself will always be with them [as their God].  He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain, [for] the old order has passed away.”

"The one who sat on the throne  said, “Behold, I make all things new.” Then he said, “Write these words down, for they are trustworthy and true.”   (Revelation 21: 3 - 5 NABRE)

Lord Jesus, make our hearts new, so that we can love as You loved us.

If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples.

"‘I have made you a light to the Gentiles, to bring salvation to the farthest corners of the earth.’”
(Acts 13:47 NLT)

"And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it."    (John 14:13-14 NIV)

Why are your hearts troubled and confused?

"DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me."
(John 14:1 AMP)

"My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?"
(John 14:2 NIV)

"And He said to them, Why are you disturbed and troubled, and why do such doubts and questionings arise in your hearts?" (Luke 24:38 AMP)

If you understand this, blessed are you if you do it.

"If you know these things, blessed and happy and to be envied are you if you practice them [if you act accordingly and really do them]."
(John 13:17 AMP)

We are changed/transformed not by what we know but by what we do every day.

"Sow a thought and you reap an action; sow an act and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny."

It is true that our character will become your destiny.  Scripture admonishes us to be extremely careful about the thought we allow into our mind.

"Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them."
(John 13:17 NIV)

Your life can be transformed totally by 5 minutes of prayer and 10 minutes with the word of God.  If you do it every day.  God Never Fails!

Yes Lord, I will bear witness to You in the world.

"I have chosen you from the world, says the Lord, and have appointed you to go out and bear fruit, fruit that will last."
(Cf. John 15: 16, 19 RM)

"While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”   So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off."   (Acts 13:2-3 NIV)

"I will bear witness to You in the world O Lord. I will spread the knowledge of your name among my brothers and sisters."  (Cf. Ps 18 (17): 50; 22 (21): 23  RM)

My Lord and My God!

"Jesus answered them, I have told you so, yet you do not believe Me [you do not trust Me and rely on Me]. The very works that I do by the power of My Father and in My Father’s name bear witness concerning Me [they are My credentials and evidence in support of Me]."  (John 10:25 AMP)

"But you don’t believe me because you are not my sheep.  My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me."  (John 10:26-27 NLT)

"The Father and I are one.”
(John 10:30 NLT)

Jesus the Christ is true God and true Man.  Not 50% God and 50 % Man.  But 100% God and 100% Man.  This is a great mystery.  We believe even though we do not understand.

The Narrowgate leads to a rich and satisfying life.

The Thief and the Good Shepherd.
The Broadway and the Narrowgate.

"Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life."
(John 10:9-10 NLT)

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."  (Matthew 7:13-14 NIV)
