Portrait of Kolya (Nikolay) Simonovich by Valentin Serov

133:4.11 To the runaway lad Jesus said: "Remember, there are two things you cannot run away from-God and yourself. Wherever you may go, you take with you yourself and the spirit of the heavenly Father which lives within your heart. My son, stop trying to deceive yourself; settle down to the courageous practice of facing the facts of life; lay firm hold on the assurances of sonship with God and the certainty of eternal life, as I have instructed you. From this day on purpose to be a real man, a man determined to face life bravely and intelligently."
