Living A Sanctified Life - Part IV


GATEWAYS TO LIVING A SANCTIFIED LIFE – PART IV
v  
Standing Strong in Prayer and fasting
- 1Thessalonians 4:3 - For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:

- 1John 5:14
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
             
- Matt 26:41 -
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

- 1Corinthians 14:4 - 
He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.
- Isaiah 58:6-8 -  6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.


- Matthew 17:21 -
Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
v Commitment to Word Practice
- Psalms 119:9-11
9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
10  With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. 

               
- Matthew 7:24-25
 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
James 1:22 - But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.            

- 1John 5:3 -
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
