Acts 14:21-27:  The life we have through Faith is not easy.  We must struggle against many difficulties, even temptations, on our journey to eternal life.

Rv 21:-1-5a:­   In the Kingdom of God all things are made new.

Jn 13:31-33a, 34-35:  Jesus is about to be betrayed  yet He teaches us the way to glory  - the way He will go.  It is the way of love.

Today’s Message:  At the conclusion of their missionary journey, Paul and Barnabas tell the Antioch community all that the Lord had accomplished in their preaching the kingdom of God.  This kingdom, to be marked by our love for one another, will reach its fulfillment in new heavens and a new earth.
