Thoughts of John

What is on my mind.

Twenty Days of Prayer: Day 12

Fifth Category (Sins of Commission)

Transgression is any act of breaking God’s law or doing something God forbids. These sins are also known as “sins of commission.” The following Scriptures describe common areas of transgressions. Prayerfully consider each one.

Ephesians 5:5 For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Ephesians 5:12 For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.

Questions for Reflection:

Have you committed any form of sexual immorality, uncleanness or perversion? Do you ever watch television or movies that feature immorality and violence? Do you make excuses by saying “There‘s nothing else to watch?” Do you dress in ways designed to incite lust in the opposite sex? Are you in the habit of reading things that are suggestive or unclean?

Scripture

1 Corinthians 3:16-17 Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? (17) If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.

Questions for Reflection:

Have you abused your body through any form of immorality or excess? Do you sin against God’s temple by harmful habits such as excessive alcohol, smoking or overeating? Is any form of drug abuse a part of your life? Have you been so enslaved to food that fasting is something you make excuses to avoid?
