“I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ” (Phil. 3:8).
The Christian who stays close to God finds greater satisfaction in resisting and overcoming temptation than giving into any sin. God made us to run on Himself.
“Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you” (James 4:10).
