GUARDING against sin


Proverbs 6:5

King James Version

5 Deliver thyself as a roe 

from the hand of the hunter, 

and as a bird 

from the hand of the fowler.

The previous post spoke of FLEEING from sin.

We've also seen links on sinawareness of sin, and abominations to God.

Now that we've got a laundry list of our sins, how does one wash away all that sin?

There is a sanctification process.

How do we avoid sinning at all?

The Holy Spirit of God led me to these verses:

John 3:5

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, 

I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Romans 13:14

King James Version

14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and make not provision for the flesh

to fulfil the lusts thereof.

2 Corinthians 5:17

King James Version

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, 

he is a new creature

old things are passed away; 


all things are become new.

Colossians 3:16

King James Version

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly 

in all wisdom; 

teaching and admonishing one another 

in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, 

singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Psalm 119:9

King James Version

9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? 

by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

Psalm 119:11

King James Version

11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, 

that I might not sin against thee.

Romans 6:11

King James Version

11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves 

to be dead indeed 

unto sin, 

but alive unto God 

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Philippians 4:13

King James Version

13 I can do all things through Christ 

which strengtheneth me.

1 John 1:7

King James Version

7 But if we walk in the light

as he is in the light, 

we have fellowship one with another, 

and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son 

cleanseth us from all sin.

Galatians 5:16

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Deuteronomy 10:12-13

King James Version

12 And now, 


what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, 

but to fear the Lord thy God, 

to walk in all his ways, 

and to love him, 

and to serve the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart 

and with all thy soul,

13 To keep the commandments of the Lord, 

and his statutes

which I command thee this day for thy good?

Romans 8:26

King James Version

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: 

for we know not what we should pray for 

as we ought

but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us 

with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Romans 5:3-5

King James Version

3 And not only so, 

but we glory in tribulations also: 

knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

4 And patience, 


and experience, 


5 And hope maketh not ashamed; 

because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts 

by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

1 Chronicles 16:11

King James Version

11 Seek the Lord and his strength, 

seek his face continually.

2 Timothy 1:7

King James Version

7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; 

but of power, 

and of love, 

and of a sound mind.

Ephesians 5:9

King James Version

9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness 

and righteousness 

and truth;)

John 14:26

King James Version

26 But the Comforter, 

which is the Holy Ghost, 

whom the Father will send in my name, 

he shall teach you all things

and bring all things to your remembrance, 

whatsoever I have said unto you.

Matthew 26:41

King James Version

41 Watch and pray

that ye enter not into temptation: 

the spirit indeed is willing, 

but the flesh is weak.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

King James Version

19 What? 

know ye not that your body 

is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, 

which ye have of God, 

and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: 

therefore glorify God in your body, 

and in your spirit, 

which are God's.

1 Corinthians 6:13

King James Version

13 Meats for the belly, 

and the belly for meats: 

but God shall destroy both it and them. 

Now the body is not for fornication, 

but for the Lord; 

and the Lord for the body.

Romans 12:1

King James Version

12 I beseech you therefore, 


by the mercies of God, 

that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, 


acceptable unto God, 

which is your reasonable service.

1 Thessalonians 5:22

King James Version

22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.

2 Corinthians 3:18

King James Version

18 But we all, 

with open face beholding 

as in a glass the glory of the Lord, 

are changed into the same image 

from glory to glory, 

even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

1 Corinthians 7:2

King James Version

2 Nevertheless, 

to avoid fornication, 

let every man have his own wife, 

and let every woman have her own husband.

Matthew 7:21-23

King James Version

21 Not every one that saith unto me, 

Lord, Lord, 

shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; 

but he that doeth the will of my Father 

which is in heaven.

Proverbs 28:13

King James Version

13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: 

but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them 

shall have mercy.

Ephesians 6:10-18

King James Version

10 Finally, 

my brethren, 

be strong in the Lord

and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God

that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, 

but against principalities, 

against powers, 

against the rulers of the darkness of this world, 

against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you 

the whole armour of God

that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, 

and having done all, 

to stand.

14 Stand therefore, 

having your loins girt about with truth

and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod 

with the preparation 

of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, 

taking the shield of faith

wherewith ye shall be able to quench 

all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation

and the sword of the Spirit, 

which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication 

in the Spirit, 

and watching thereunto with all perseverance 

and supplication for all saints;
