    2 Corinthians 9:7 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    7 Let each one give [thoughtfully and with purpose] just as he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or
    under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver
    [and delights in the one whose heart is in his gift].

    1 Peter 5:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    8 Be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined],
    be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours,
    the devil,
    prowls around like a roaring lion
    [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour.

    Mark 9:42-50 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    42 “But whoever causes one of these little ones
    who believe and trust in Me to stumble
    [that is, to sin or lose faith], it would be better
    for him if a heavy millstone [one requiring a
    donkey’s strength to turn it] were hung
    around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.

    43 If your hand causes you to stumble and sin,
    cut it off
     [that is, remove yourself from the source

    of temptation]! It is better for you to enter life crippled,
    than to have two hands and go into [a]hell,
    into the unquenchable fire,

    44 [b][where their worm does not die,
    and the fire is not put out.]

    45 If your foot causes you to stumble and sin,
    cut it off
     [that is, remove yourself from the source
    of temptation]! It would be better for you to enter
    life lame than to have two feet and be thrown into hell,

    46 [c][where their worm does not die, and the fire
    is not put out.]

    47 If your eye causes you to stumble and sin,
    throw it out [that is, remove yourself from the
    source of temptation]! 
    It would be better for you
    to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than to
    have two eyes and be thrown into hell,

    48 where their worm [that feeds on the dead] does not die, and the fire is not put out.

    49 “For everyone will be salted with fire.
    50 Salt is good and useful; but if salt has lost
    its saltiness (purpose), how will you make it salty?
    Have salt within yourselves continually,
    and be at peace with one another.”

    John 14:15 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    15 “If you [really] love Me, you will keep and
    obey My commandments.

    1 Corinthians 15:33 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

    33 Don’t be fooled. “Bad company ruins good character.”

    1 Thessalonians 5:22 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    22 Abstain from every form of evil
    [withdraw and keep away from it].

    Matthew 17:21 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    21 [But this kind of demon does not go out except by prayer and fasting.]”

    Romans 8:34 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    34 Who is the one who condemns us? Christ Jesus is the One who died [to pay our penalty], and more than that, who was raised [from the dead], and who is at the right hand of God interceding [with the Father] for us.

    Hebrews 7:25 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    25 Therefore He is able also to save forever (completely, perfectly, for eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to intercede and intervene on their behalf [with God].

    Romans 8:26-27 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    Our Victory in Christ

    26 In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us
    in our weakness.
    We do not know what prayer to offer or
    how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself
    [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes
    on our behalf with sighs and groanings too deep for words.

    27 And He who searches the hearts knows what the
    mind of the Spirit is, because the Spirit intercedes
    [before God] on behalf of [a]God’s people in
    accordance with God’s will.
