If you're in the Word of God today, then you will be seeing Christ as precious today, and in return, you will not believe the lies of the devil. The Word shows us that Christ is better then everything else.
It is true that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. It's true that Paul has been arguing that there is none good - no not one. Not by nature. When a person is saved, Jesus makes them His workmanship.
Brethren... I tell you this. There are people, and I know it, brethren I've seen it, people who were running hard after God, they we're being used of God and they toyed with sin and I believe their saved people,...

Consequence is a result or a outcome of a decision or event that happened earlier. Right? And so when we make decisions there are consequences that come as a result of that. So if someone takes a wife from among the p...
Romans 9:1-3 I am speaking the truth in Christ--I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit-- that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh.
Do you say to yourself, “I'm single and God has forgotten me, He has not given me a spouse yet!” If that is you, may it not be so, for God numbers the very hairs on your head, He has not forgotten you.
In this video excerpt Tim Conway exhorts the believer to cry out to God for more humility, to rely upon Christ in every situation. When we do not rely upon God and seek Him first, we are in return dishonoring God.
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. - 2 Corinthians 3:18
Ezekiel 22:19 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Because you have all become dross, therefore, behold, I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem. 20 As one gathers silver and bronze and iron and lead and tin into a furnace, to blow the fire on it in order to melt it, so I will gather you in my anger and in my wrath, and I will put you in and melt you. 21 I will gather you and blow on you with the fire of my wrath, and you shall be melted in the midst of it. 22 As silver is melted in a furnace, so you shall be melted in the midst of it, and you shall know that I am the LORD; I have poured out my wrath upon you."
Psalm 5:5 - The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers.

Paul Washer read's an expect from Puritan John Flavel, called "The Father's Bargain".
"Here you may suppose the Father to say when driving His bargain with Christ for you:
The Father speaks. My Son, here is a company of poor, miserable souls that have utterly undone themselves and now lay open to my justice. Justice demands satisfaction for them, or will satisfy itself in the eternal ruin of them.
The Son responds. O my Father. Such is my love to and pity for them, that rather then they shall perish eternally I will be responsible for them as their guarantee. Bring in all thy bills, that I may see what they owe thee. Bring them all in, that there be no after-reckonings with them. At my hands shall thou require it. I would rather choose to suffer the wrath that is theirs then they should suffer it. Upon me, my Father, upon me be all their debt.
The Father responds. But my Son, if thou undertake for them, thou must reckon to pay the last mite. Expect no abatement. Son, if I spare them... I will not spare you.
The Son responds. Content Father. Let it be so. Charge it all upon me. I am able to discharge it. And though it prove a kind of undoing to me, though it impoverish all my riches, empty all my treasures... I am content to take it."
