"Repent! For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." ~ "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the first and great commandment. A second likewise is this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'" ~ "Come after me, and I will make you into fishers for men." ~ "A certain man made a great supper, and he invited many people. He sent out his servant at supper time to tell those who were invited, 'Come, for everything is ready now.' They all as one began to make excuses. "The first said to him, 'I have bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please have me excused.'" ~ "Another said, 'I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I must go try them out. Please have me excused.'" ~ "Another said, 'I have married a wife, and therefore I can't come.'" ~ "That servant came, and told his lord these things. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor, maimed, blind, and lame.'" ~ "The servant said, 'Lord, it is done as you commanded, and there is still room.'" ~ "The lord said to the servant, 'Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. For I tell you that none of those men who were invited will taste of my supper.'" ~ "Most certainly I tell you, there is no one who has left house, or wife, or brothers, or parents, or children, for the Kingdom of God's sake, who will not receive many times more in this time, and in the world to come, eternal life." ~ "I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover
with you before I suffer, for I tell you, I will no longer by any means eat of it until it is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God." ~ "Follow me." ~ "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will not be hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. But I told you that you have seen me, and yet you don't believe. All those whom the Father gives me will come to me. He who comes to me I will in no way throw out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. This is the will of my Father who sent me, that of all he has given to me I should lose nothing, but should raise him up at the last day. This is the will of the one who sent me, that everyone who sees the Son, and believes in him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day." ~ "If a man loves me, he will keep my word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our home with him." ~ "Go your way, for he is my chosen vessel to bear my name before the nations and kings, and the children of Israel. For I will show him how many things he must suffer for my name's sake."
