SEPT. 4 – 1 JOHN 2:16

9/04            1 John 2:16

For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.


Avoid letting the world control you.  Spend time with Jesus and He will equip you to hold fast to your freedom from sin.  

SEPT. 3 – JER. 9:23-24

9/03            Jeremiah 9:23-24

This is what the LORD says: “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, 

24 but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the LORD.


Know the Lord.  Spend time in His Word.  Ask Jesus into your heart, and to  forgive you of your sin.  Believe in Him and HE will do it.  

SEPT. 2 – PSALM 75:4

9/02            Psalm 75:4

“I warned the proud, ‘Stop your boasting!’ I told the wicked, ‘Don’t raise your fists!

SEPT. 1 – JAMES 4:6

9/01            James 4:6

And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud  but gives grace to the humble.
