James 4:7-9 The Passion Translation (TPT)
7 So then, surrender to God. Stand up to the devil and resist him and he will turn and run away from you. 8 Move your heart closer and closer to God, and he will come even closer to you.[a] But make sure you cleanse your life, you sinners, and keep your heart pure and stop doubting.[b] 9 Feel the pain of your sin, be sorrowful and weep! Let your joking around[c] be turned into mourning and your joy into deep humiliation.
