the road from Bangkok to Pattaya and BACK. Then (12) hours on a Train from Bangkok to
Surat Thani and then (2) more hours in a Van from Surat Thani to Krabi.
We have done enough traveling for the year … would you agree??

too expensive for us broke people!! On the train we traveled with the typical Thai people, many had STANDING tickets

Matthew 16:24-28 (NIV)
“24Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.
25For whoever wants to save his life/soul will lose it, but whoever loses his life for Me will find it.
26What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?
27For the Son of Man is going to come in His Father’s glory with His angels, and then He will reward each person according to what he has Done.
28I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.”
Matthew 16:24-28 (AMPLIFIED)
24Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to be My disciple, let him deny himself [disregard, lose sight of, and forget himself and his own interests]
and take up his cross and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying, also].
25For whoever is bent on saving his [temporal] life [his comfort and security here] shall lose it [eternal life]; and whoever loses his life [his comfort and security here]
for My sake shall find it [life everlasting].
26For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life [his blessed life in the kingdom of God]? Or what would a man give as an exchange for
his [blessed] life [in the kingdom of God]? 27For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory (majesty, splendor) of His Father with His angels, and then He will render account
and reward every man in accordance with what he has done.
28Truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in (into) His kingdom.”
Matthew 19:16-29 (Mark 10:17-31, Luke 18:18-29)
27Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?” 28Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, at the Renewal of All Things,
when the Son of Man sits on His glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
29And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother (wife) or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much (in value) and will inherit eternal life.”
Mark 8:34-38 (NIV)
“34Then He (Jesus) called the crowd to Him along with His disciples and said: “If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.
35For whoever wants to save his life/soul will lose it, but whoever loses his life for Me and for the gospel will save it.
36What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? 37Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?
38If anyone is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His Father’s glory with the holy angels.”
Mark 8:34-38 (AMPLIFIED)
34And Jesus called [to Him] the throng with His disciples and said to them, “If anyone intends to come after Me, let him deny himself
[forget, ignore, disown, and lose sight of himself and his own interests] and take up his cross, and [joining Me as a disciple and siding with My party]
follow with Me [continually, cleaving steadfastly to Me].
35For whoever wants to save his [higher, spiritual, eternal] life, will lose it [the lower, natural, temporal life which is lived only on earth];
and whoever gives up his life [which is lived only on earth] for My sake and the Gospel's will save it [his higher, spiritual life in the eternal kingdom of God].
36For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his life [in the eternal kingdom of God]? 37For what can a man give as an exchange (a compensation,
a ransom, in return) for his [blessed] life [in the eternal kingdom of God]? 38For whoever is ashamed [here and now] of Me and My words in this adulterous (unfaithful)
and [preeminently] sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when He comes in the glory (splendor and majesty) of His Father with the holy angels.”
Luke 9:23-27 (NIV)
“23Then He (Jesus) said to them all: “If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.
24For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for Me will save it. 25What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?
26If anyone is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
27I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God.”
Luke 9:23-27 (AMPLIFIED)
23And He said to all, “If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [disown himself, forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests, refuse and give up himself]
and take up his cross daily and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also].
24For whoever would preserve his life and save it will lose and destroy it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he will preserve and save it [from the penalty of eternal death].
25For what does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and ruins or forfeits (loses) himself?
26Because whoever is ashamed of Me and of My teachings, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when He comes in the [threefold] glory (the splendor and majesty) of Himself
and of the Father and of the holy angels.
27However I tell you truly, there are some of those standing here who will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God.”
Luke 14:25-35 (Are we the Large Crowd just Traveling with Jesus?)
25Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them HE said:
26“If anyone comes to me and does not HATE his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he Cannot be My Disciple.
27And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me CANNOT be My Disciple.
28“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it?
29For if he lays the foundation and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him, 30saying, ‘This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.’
31“Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Will he not first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand?
32If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of peace.
33In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has Cannot be My Disciple. 34“Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?
35It is fit neither for the soil nor for the manure pile; it is thrown out.”
John 12:23-26 (NIV)
“23Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
24I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies,
it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.
25The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
26Whoever serves Me must follow Me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves Me.”
John 12:23-26 (AMPLIFIED)
23And Jesus answered them, “The time has come for the Son of Man to be glorified and exalted.
24I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains
[just one grain] by itself alone. But if it dies, it produces many others and yields a rich harvest.
25Anyone who loves his life loses it, but anyone who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal.
[Whoever has no love for, no concern for, no regard for his life here on earth, but despises it,
preserves his life forever and ever.]
26If anyone serves Me, he must continue to follow Me [to cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying]
and wherever I am, there will My servant be also. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.”
Romans 12:1-2 (NIV)
“1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living Sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.
2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12:1-2 (AMPLIFIED)
1 I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
Romans 14:8 (NIV)
“If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord.
So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.”

I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me;
and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

1THEREFORE BE imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father]. 2And walk in love,
[esteeming and delighting in one another] as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a slain offering and sacrifice to God [for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance.
Colossians 3:1-4 (NIV)
“1Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
2Set your minds on things above, NOT on Earthly Things. 3For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
4When Christ, who is your Life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
Colossians 3:1-4 (AMPLIFIED)
1IF THEN you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures]
that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
2And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), NOT on the things that are on the earth.
3For [as far as this world is concerned] you have died, and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God.
4When Christ, Who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in [the splendor of His] glory.
James 4:4 (NIV)
“4You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God?
Anyone who Chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.”
James 4:4 (AMPLIFIED)
4You [are like] unfaithful wives [having illicit love affairs with the world and breaking your marriage vow to God]!
Do you not know that being the world's friend is being God's enemy? So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world takes his stand as an enemy of God.
James 5:1-3, 5 (NIV)
“1Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you.
2Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes.
3Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days.”
“5You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have Fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.”
James 5:1-3, 5 (AMPLIFIED)
1COME NOW, you rich [people], weep aloud and lament over the miseries (the woes) that are surely coming upon you.
2Your abundant wealth has rotted and is ruined, and your [many] garments have become moth-eaten.
3Your gold and silver are completely rusted through, and their rust will be testimony against you and it will devour your flesh as if it were fire. You have heaped together treasure for the last days.
5[Here] on earth you have abandoned yourselves to soft (prodigal) living and to [the pleasures of] self-indulgence and self-gratification. You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.
1 John 2:3-6 (NIV)
“3We know that we have come to know Him if we obey His commands.
4The man who says, “I know Him,” but does not do what He commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5But if anyone obeys His word, God’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in Him: 6Whoever claims to live in Him must walk as Jesus did.”
1 John 2:3-6 (AMPLIFIED)
3And this is how we may discern [daily, by experience] that we are coming to know Him [to perceive, recognize, understand, and become better acquainted with Him]: if we keep (bear in mind, observe, practice) His teachings (precepts, commandments).
4Whoever says, I know Him [I perceive, recognize, understand, and am acquainted with Him] but fails to keep and obey His commandments (teachings) is a liar, and the Truth [of the Gospel] is not in him.
5But he who keeps (treasures) His Word [who bears in mind His precepts, who observes His message in its entirety], truly in him has the love of and for God been perfected (completed, reached maturity). By this we may perceive (know, recognize, and be sure) that we are in Him: 6Whoever says he abides in Him ought [as a personal debt] to walk and conduct himself in the same way in which He walked and conducted Himself.
1 John 2:15-17 (NIV)
“15Do not love the world or ANYTHING in the World. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world.
17The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.”
1 John 2:15-17 (AMPLIFIED)
15Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him.
16For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the
