THE 5 COMMITMENTS OF REPENTANCE
ABSTAIN FROM IMMORALITY I commit that I will abstain from whatever presents immorality as acceptable. I will be aware of Satan’s tricks and I will stand up for God’s morals. I will get rid of the moral filth, based upon God’s Word, that I have allowed into my life and I will be holy to the Lord. (Deuteronomy 7:26; 8:10–14; 1 John 5:19; Ephesians 2:2; 5:3–7; 2 John 2:7–11; James 1:21; Exodus 20:7; Colossians 3:8; 1 Peter 2:11; 1 John 1:8, 9)
MAKE PRAYER AND GOD’S WORD A PRIORITY I will make prayer and God’s Word a priority in my life and my family’s life. I will discipline myself to my quiet times, and I will make opportunities where we read and pray together as a couple or family. (Matthew 4:4; Psalm 1:1; 119:11; Deuteronomy 6:4–9; 32:45–47; 1 Thessalonians 5:17; Hebrews 4:12)
HONOR THE SABBATH I commit that I will no longer miss church for work, for things of this world, for entertainment, for laziness, or for selfish reasons. I will no longer honor the changing of the blue law, but I will honor God’s Law. I realize that I reap what I sow. I am ready to stand up for Jesus and His Word and to call the church back to Him. (Isaiah 56:2; 58:13,14; 1 John 2:15–17; James 4:4; Leviticus 19:1–3; Exodus 20: 8–11; 31:13–17; Acts 20:7; Revelation 1:10)
BRING IN THE TITHES AND OFFERINGS I will not rob God. I will bring in the whole tithe and offering. I will do this cheerfully because I love and trust God for all of my blessings. I also realize that our nation is under a curse because of our unfaithfulness in this area. (2 Corinthians 8:19; 9:6–7; Malachi 3:6–18; Matthew 23:23)
MAKE DISCIPLES I will be a disciple maker. I realize the moral decay of the church and our country, and I am willing to call people back to God. I understand that I will be persecuted, but I am willing to stand up for Jesus and make disciples. (Mark 8:34, 35; Matthew 5:10; 28:18–20; John 15:4–16; Luke 16:9; 2 Timothy 1:7; 3:12; Galatians 2:20; 1 John 2:6; Amos 6:1–7; Ezekiel 3:18–20; Acts 20:26; 26:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17–20)
