Taken from Scripture....

A few verses for the day. :)


* "Finally be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth and having put on the breasplate of righteousness, and as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of saltation, and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit with all prayer and supplications."

~ Ephesians 6:10-18



* "So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. Having nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness."

~ 2 Timothy 2:22-25



* "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own posession, who called you out of darkness and into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not recieved mercy, but now you have recieved mercy."

~ 1 Peter 2:9-10



* ". . . Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God."

~ James 4:4



* "Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith, Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made good confession in the presence of many witnesses."

~ 1 Timothy 5:11-12
