1 John 3:8 (AMP) The one who practices sin [separating himself from God, and offending Him by acts of disobedience, indifference, or rebellion] is of the devil [and takes his inner character and moral values from him, not God]; for the devil has sinned and violated God’s law from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.
Beloved, resist the urge to create separation from Me. Refuse to choose anything which causes such separation. For I AM here, I AM with you and I have chosen you. In return, choose Me.
And choose Me over and over as temptation comes. Know that relationship with Me exceeds the fulfillment or joy that anything else claims to give. So lay aside anything that would inhibit your closeness with Me, and pursue Me with your whole heart – just as I pursue you.
