I.Don’t Leave Without Finding Him

where there is no water.
1 Corinthians 13:7, Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Romans 6:4-5, As Christ was raised from the dead to the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become
united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection.
John 11:25-26, Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, shall live. And whoever lives
and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?
John 3:16-17, For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have
eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
B.Tell your world
John 20:29, Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.
1 Corinthians 15:6, After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time.
In Acts 4:20, when told to stop preaching and speaking about Jesus, Peter and John said “we cannot stop speaking about what we have seen
at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying. And they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “Because
they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.” When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there,
and did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing Him to be the gardener, she said
to Him, “Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away.” Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said
to Him in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” (which means, Teacher). Jesus said to her, “Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to
My brethren and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.’” Mary Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, “I
have seen the Lord,” and that He had said these things to her.
