In my Father’s house are many homes. If it weren’t so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you.
If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will receive you to myself; that where I am, you may be there also.
You know where I go, and you know the way.”
Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going. How can we know the way?”
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father, except through me.
If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on, you know him, and have seen him.”
Bow down your ear to me. Deliver me speedily. Be to me a strong rock, a house of defense to save me.
For you are my rock and my fortress, therefore for your name’s sake lead me and guide me.
Pluck me out of the net that they have laid secretly for me, for you are my stronghold.
Into your hand I commend my spirit.
You redeem me, Yahweh, God of truth. I hate those who regard lying vanities, but I trust in Yahweh.
I will be glad and rejoice in your loving kindness, for you have seen my affliction.
You have known my soul in adversities. You have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy. You have set my feet in a large place.
John, to the seven assemblies that are in Asia:
Grace to you and peace from God, who is and who was and who is to come;
and from the seven Spirits who are before his throne;
and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.
To him who loves us, and washed us from our sins by his blood—
and he made us to be a Kingdom, priests to his God and Father—
to him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
Therefore, whatever you desire for men to do to you, you shall also do to them; for this is the law and the prophets.
“Enter in by the narrow gate;
for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter in by it.
How the gate is narrow and the way is restricted that leads to life!
There are who find it.
