Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
