  • “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”John 15:5 (ESV)


  • Delight yourself in the Lord,
        and he will give you the desires of your heart.
    Psalm 37:4 (ESV)


  • Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’Matthew 7:21-23 (ESV)


  • With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor,
        but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.
    Proverbs 11:9 (ESV)


  • “You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”Matthew 5:48 (ESV)


  • “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”James 1:22 (ESV)



  • My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge;
        because you have rejected knowledge,
        I reject you from being a priest to me.
    And since you have forgotten the law of your God,
        I also will forget your children.”Hosea 4:6 (ESV)


  • You shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 10 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.”Deuteronomy 5:9-10 (ESV)


Hold Yourself Accountable:

  • Choose to live righteous not right.


Apply the Kingdom Principle:

  • “He made Christ who knew no sin to [judicially] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious lovingkindness].”2 Corinthians 5:21 (AMP)
