God, God lives in him and he in God.

Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
For the sake of Your name,
O LORD, revive me.
Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.
Psalm 143:10,11 NASB
But as it is written,
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither haveentered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared forthem that
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spiritsearcheth all things, yea, the deep things
of God. For what manknoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him?even so the things of God knoweth
no man, but the Spirit of God.
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spiritwhich is of God; that
we might know the things that are freely givento us of God.
1 Corinthians 2:9-12 KJV

Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of
John 1:1-4 NIV

turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see
Hebrews 12:13,14 KJV
Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with
blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. And just as it is appointed for men to die once,
and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not
to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.

The Mission of the Twelve
Then Jesus called the twelve
together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom
of God and to heal. He said to them, “Take nothing for your journey, no staff, nor bag, nor bread, nor money—not
even an extra tunic. Whatever house you enter, stay there, and leave from there. Wherever they do not welcome you, as you
are leaving that town shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.” They departed and went through the
villages, bringing the good news and curing diseases everywhere.
(Mt 14.1—12; Mk 6.14—29)
Now Herod the ruler
heard about all that had taken place, and he was perplexed, because it was said by some that John had been raised from the
dead, by some that Elijah had appeared, and by others that one of the ancient prophets had arisen. Herod said, “John
I beheaded; but who is this about whom I hear such things?” And he tried to see him.
Feeding the Five Thousand
(Mt 14.13—21; Mk 6.30—44; Jn 6.1—15)
their return the apostles told Jesus all they had done. He took them with him and withdrew privately to a city called Bethsaida.
When the crowds found out about it, they followed him; and he welcomed them, and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and
healed those who needed to be cured. The day was drawing to a close, and the twelve came to him and said, “Send the
crowd away, so that they may go into the surrounding villages and countryside, to lodge and get provisions; for we are here
in a deserted place.” But he said to them, “You give them something to eat.” They said, “We have no
more than five loaves and two fish—unless we are to go and buy food for all these people.” For there were about
five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, “Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each.” They did
so and made them all sit down. And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke
them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled. What was left over was gathered
up, twelve baskets of broken pieces.
