    Gift:v37-38 we are the vessel that Christ cleans up so the spirit can move-in 2nd Corinthians 5:17. I sure messed up a lot(sin). I am thankful for First John 1: 6-10, 2:1-- Satan surely knows our weakest point he will never stop his attacks on the Lords people!! Put on all of The Lords armor-- Ephesians 6:11--- ! We are surely in the birth pains! Hang on stay near the cross WE are soon going HOME.

    V. 14 - the leper; Jesus said "go and show thyself to the priest and offer for thy cleansing". I looked up just what all that 'offering' entailed; My goodness!! It'd take all day to do that!! Which is fine; what Jesus did for us was a lot more than that.

    verse 5:27...Jesus says "follow me".. to
