5 VOWS as proposed by Tozer

5 VOWS as proposed by Tozer

1. Deal thoroughly with sin. Call the sin as it is. ( if gossiping or back biting call it that - not say "I am just letting it out" If in bondage to things - admit  materials are our God - idol worship- don't rationalize by saying i" because I lacked when I was a kid or my mama made me like this or the dark side made me like this")The kingdom of God is not meat and drink... But righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost Romans 14:17. The soul that sinneth shall die Ezekial 18:4,20
Every known sin is to be named, identified and repudiated and we  are to trust that God will deliver us from it.
God is holy!

2. Never own anything. We can have things but we ought to be delivered from the sense of possessing them. If  we can rid of covetous nature or the nature of " it is mine" we are free- emancipated

3. Never defend yourself. Let God do it. Exodus 23:22. Generally read Exodus 23

4. Never pass anything on about anybody else that will hurt him. Love covers a multitude of sins 1 Peter 4:8. With what judgement, ye judge, ye shall be judged Matthew 7:2

5. Never accept any glory. God will not give or share His glory with anyone .  Christ cleansing the temple- why? They bought and sold for profit. They got a percentage on serving The Lord.

When you make these vows remember they introduce the cross into your self life. Never turn back. If a vow is breached, repent but never go back. Yeshua is not someone to experiment with.
