He went into the temple with them ---

walking, jumping about and praising God."

At 1:57 it plays the lyrics that say:

"Neither life nor death could separate us..."

"For I am certain that neither death nor life,

neither angels, nor principalities,

neither the present nor the future, nor powers,

neither height nor depth nor any other creature,

will be able to separate us

from the love of God

that comes to us in Christ Jesus, our Lord."

think about these things.
Keep on doing what you have learned and received
and heard and seen in me.

Jesus taught,
"Some fell among briers, and
the thorns growing up with it stifled it.
But some fell on good soil, grew up,
and yielded grain hundredfold."
Luke 8:7-8

The Lord plants seeds of faith.
Will they grow?
Will they thrive?
He expects great results.
Grow up.

"Jesus explained to them:
'I myself am the bread of life.
No one who comes to me shall ever be hungry,
no one who believes in me shall ever thirst.'"
John 6:35

There is no one like Jesus.
He is the answer to your prayers.
He is wholeness.
He is where you are.
He is completeness.
