Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (James 4:10)
But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:15
My child, humble yourself and submit yourself to me. I am the giver of all good things. First, I give you my grace—grace that saves you into an eternity with me. Second, I give you my name. You are the child I delight in. You have been adopted by me. Third, I give you my Spirit. My Spirit will help you live a life that is holy and pleasing to me. I do not give you empty promises. Humble yourself before me and I will lift you up. Submit your spirit to my Spirit. I desire a greater intimacy with you. You are a stranger to this world, but a friend of mine. Do not conduct yourself as the world desires, but give yourself to me. Resist evil. Come near to me and enjoy the fellowship of our souls.
