FOLLOW AFTER THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT— “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the the Spirit” (Romans 8:1; 8:13; Galatians 5:19, 23; I Corinthians 9:27).
LIVE A GODLY LIFE— “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age” (Titus 2:11–12; Colossians 3:5, 12; Revelation 21:8; 21:27).
FAITHFULLY FOLLOW THE TEACHINGS OF CHRIST TO THE END OF LIFE— “And you shall be hated by all for my name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved” (Matthew 10:22; Revelation 2:10; I Corinthians 10:1, 12). When one departs from the commands of Christ, it is worse than if he had never known them (II Peter 2:20, 22; Hebrews 6:4, 6; 10:26, 29).
ADD THE CHRISTIAN GRACES AND BEAR SPIRITUAL FRUIT— “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, and to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (II Peter 1:5–8, 10; John 15:1-6).
REPENT, CONFESS, AND PRAY— When we sin we must repent of it, confess it, and pray to God that we may be forgiven. “Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you” (Acts 8:22; I John 1:8, 10; James 5: 16, 19).
