- 1 Samuel 15:23 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
23 Refusing to obey is as bad as the sin of sorcery. Being stubborn and doing what you want is like the sin of worshiping idols.
- James 4:3-9 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
3 Or when you ask, you don’t receive anything, because the reason you ask is wrong. You only want to use it for your own pleasure.
4 You people are not faithful to God! You should know that loving what the world has is the same as hating God. So anyone who wants to be friends with this evil world becomes God’s enemy.
5 Do you think the Scriptures mean nothing? The Scriptures say, “The Spirit God made to live in us wants us only for himself.”
6 But the kindness God shows is greater. As the Scripture says, “God is against the proud, but he is kind to the humble.”
7 So give yourselves to God. Stand against the devil, and he will run away from you.
8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. You are sinners, so clean sin out of your lives. You are trying to follow God and the world at the same time. Make your thinking pure.
- 2 Corinthians 4:4-5 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
4 The ruler of this world has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They cannot see the light of the Good News—the message about the divine greatness of Christ. Christ is the one who is exactly like God.
5 We don’t tell people about ourselves. But we tell people that Jesus Christ is Lord, and we tell them that we are your servants for Jesus.
