Part 1

 

Ask yourself: Where do I stand with God?

 

1.     _ Is there any unconfessed sin in my life?

2.     _ Do I harbour unforgiveness and bitterness in my life?

3.     _ Are there any doubtful practices/activities in my life?

4.     _ Am I obeying the Holy Spirit in all things?

5.     _ Am I confessing Jesus unashamedly?

 

Ask yourself: Am I living a life of integrity?

 

Let every Christian live in a way worthy of Christ:

 

1.     _ Do not pay or except bribes.

2.     _ Pay your taxes.

3.     _ Do not be involved in any form of injustice towards other people.

group in your sphere of influence.
