    To Wayne, 12/15/16 - I just now saw the scriptures from Jn. 14:8-13 you gave me when I couldn't recall them. Thank-you --- belatedly. I was not online for 3 wks. during 12/15/'16 because of the flu/pneumonia/bladder infection - all at the same time. At 74 I should have died, but the Lord Jesus kept me.

    As far as the east is from the West, God has thrown my sins into the sea of forgetfulness. No longer under the law of sin but under grace, preparing to go to my heavenly father's place.

    Jesus was the perfect reflection of his Father. Seeing him was like seeing his Father as verse 9 shows.
