John 6:1-21.

John 6:1-21
Feeding Five Thousand

"Jesus crossed Lake Galilee, which was also known as Lake Tiberias. A
large crowd had seen him work miracles to heal the sick, and those
people went with him. - It was almost time for the Jewish festival of
Passover, and Jesus went up on a mountain with his disciples and sat
down. When Jesus saw the large crowd coming toward him, he asked
Philip, "Where will we get enough food to feed all these people?" He
said this to test Philip, since he already knew what he was going to
do. Philip answered, "Don't you know that it would take almost a
year's wages just to buy only a little bread for each of these
people?" Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the disciples.
He spoke up and said, "There is a boy here who has five small loaves
of barley bread and two fish. But what good is that with all these
people?" The ground was covered with grass, and Jesus told his
disciples to have everyone sit down. About five thousand men were in
the crowd. Jesus took the bread in his hands and gave thanks to God.
Then he passed the bread to the people, and he did the same with the
fish, until everyone had plenty to eat. The people ate all they
wanted, and Jesus told his disciples to gather up the leftovers, so
that nothing would be wasted. The disciples gathered them up and
filled twelve large baskets with what was left over from the five
barley loaves. After the people had seen Jesus work this miracle, they
began saying, "This must be the Prophet who is to come into the
world!" Jesus realized that they would try to force him to be their
king. So he went up on a mountain, where he could be alone.

Jesus Walks on the Water

That evening, Jesus' disciples went down to the lake. They got into a
boat and started across for Capernaum. Later that evening Jesus had
still not come to them, and a strong wind was making the water
rough.When the disciples had rowed for three or four miles, they saw
Jesus walking on the water. He kept coming closer to the boat, and
they were terrified. But he said, "I am Jesus! Don't be afraid!" The
disciples wanted to take him into the boat, but suddenly the boat
reached the shore where they were headed."

Jesus is the way. Invite Him into your heart.

Mark 10:35-45

Mark 10:35-45
The Request of James and John

"James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came up to Jesus and asked,
"Teacher, will you do us a favor?" Jesus asked them what they wanted,
and they answered, "When you come into your glory, please let one of
us sit at your right side and the other at your left." Jesus told
them, "You don't really know what you're asking! Are you able to drink
from the cup that I must soon drink from or be baptized as I must be
baptized?" "Yes, we are!" James and John answered. Then Jesus replied,
"You certainly will drink from the cup from which I must drink. And
you will be baptized just as I must! But it isn't for me to say who
will sit at my right side and at my left. That is for God to decide."
When the ten other disciples heard this, they were angry with James
and John. But Jesus called the disciples together and said: You know
that those foreigners who call themselves kings like to order their
people around. And their great leaders have full power over the people
they rule. But don't act like them. If you want to be great, you must
be the servant of all the others. And if you want to be first, you
must be everyone's slave. The Son of Man did not come to be a slave
master, but a slave who will give his life to rescue many people."

Jesus is the way. Invite Him into your heart.

Acts 13:13-35.

Acts 13:13-35
Paul and Barnabas in Antioch of Pisidia

Paul and the others left Paphos and sailed to Perga in Pamphylia. But
John left them and went back to Jerusalem. The rest of them went on
from Perga to Antioch in Pisidia. Then on the Sabbath they went to the
Jewish meeting place and sat down. After the reading of the Law and
the Prophets, the leaders sent someone over to tell Paul and Barnabas,
"Friends, if you have anything to say that will help the people,
please say it." Paul got up. He motioned with his hand and said:
People of Israel, and everyone else who worships God, listen! The God
of Israel chose our ancestors, and he let our people prosper while
they were living in Egypt. Then with his mighty power he led them out,
and for about forty years he took care of them in the desert. He
destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan and gave their land to
our people. All this happened in about years.
Then God gave our people judges until the time of the prophet Samuel,
but the people demanded a king. So for forty years God gave them King
Saul, the son of Kish from the tribe of Benjamin. Later, God removed
Saul and let David rule in his place. God said about him, "David the
son of Jesse is the kind of person who pleases me most! He does
everything I want him to do." God promised that someone from David's
family would come to save the people of Israel, and that one is Jesus.
But before Jesus came, John was telling everyone in Israel to turn
back to God and be baptized. Then, when John's work was almost done,
he said, "Who do you people think I am? Do you think I am the Promised
One? He will come later, and I am not good enough to untie his
sandals." Now listen, you descendants of Abraham! Pay attention, all
of you Gentiles who are here to worship God! Listen to this message
about how to be saved, because it is for everyone. The people of
Jerusalem and their leaders didn't realize who Jesus was. And they
didn't understand the words of the prophets that they read each
Sabbath. So they condemned Jesus just as the prophets had said. They
did exactly what the Scriptures said they would. Even though they
couldn't find any reason to put Jesus to death, they still asked
Pilate to have him killed. After Jesus had been put to death, he was
taken down from the cross and placed in a tomb. But God raised him
from death! Then for many days Jesus appeared to his followers who
had gone with him from Galilee to Jerusalem. Now they are telling our
people about him. God made a promise to our ancestors. And we are here
to tell you the good news that he has kept this promise to us. It is
just as the second Psalm says about Jesus, "You are my son because
today I have become your Father." God raised Jesus from death and will
never let his body decay. It is just as God said, "I will make to you
the same holy promise that I made to David."
And in another psalm it says, "God will never let the body of his Holy
One decay."

God bless you.

Righteousness by Faith.

Righteousness by Faith
Faith In Christ Jesus

Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but
as an obligation. However, to the man who does not work but trusts God
who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.

Romans 4:4,5 NIV

It is he (Jesus) which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick
and dead. To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name
whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

Acts 1042b,43 KJV

Jesus said, "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will
give you rest."

Matthew 11:28 NASB

God bless you.
