Acts 14: 19- 27

14:19 But as the disciples were standing around him, he got up and entered the city. And the next day, he set out with Barnabas for Derbe.
14:20 And when they had evangelized that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch,
14:21 strengthening the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them that they should remain always in the faith, and that it is necessary for us to enter into the kingdom of God through many tribulations.
14:22 And when they had established priests for them in each church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, in whom they believed.
14:23 And traveling by way of Pisidia, they arrived in Pamphylia.
14:24 And having spoken the word of the Lord in Perga, they went down into Attalia.
14:25 And from there, they sailed to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of God for the work which they had now accomplished.
14:26 And when they had arrived and had gathered together the church, they related what great things God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.
14:27 And they remained for no small amount of time with the disciples.

John 14: 27- 31

14:27 Peace I leave for you; my Peace I give to you. Not in the way that the world gives, do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, and let it not fear.
14:28 You have heard that I said to you: I am going away, and I am returning to you. If you loved me, certainly you would be gladdened, because I am going to the Father. For the Father is greater than I.
14:29 And now I have told you this, before it happens, so that, when it will happen, you may believe.
14:30 I will not now speak at length with you. For the prince of this world is coming, but he does not have anything in me.
14:31 Yet this is so that the world may know that I love the Father, and that I am acting according to the commandment that the Father has given to me. Rise up, let us go from here.”
