Separate unto Salvation
James 1:21 (KJB) Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

Are You Rich and Rough or Poor and Mild?
Proverbs 18:23 (KJB) The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.
The poor in spirit are humble in nature. They have no air about them or lift themselves up above others. They have needs but do not use a demanding and insistent tone to their prayers.

Are you wallowing in pride with god or seeking God and righteousness?
The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. (Psalms 10:4 KJV)
Pride closes spiritual doors; slamming them closed tight. The matter of pride is in direct conflict or opposition to humility and the spiritual things of God. Those who operate in pride are at home and comfortable in the darkness of this evil world; enjoying the ... Continue Reading →
