Don't you know what Scripture says? The spirit that God caused to live in us wants us to belong only to God. Don't you think Scripture has a reason for saying that?
God continues to give us more grace. That's why Scripture says, "God opposes those who are proud. But he gives grace to those who are not." #1(Proverbs 3:34)#2
So obey God. Stand up to the devil. He will run away from you.
Come near to God, and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners. Make your hearts pure, you who can't make up your minds.
Be full of sorrow. Cry and sob. Change your laughter to crying. Change your joy to sadness.
Bow down to the Lord. He will lift you up.
