My rejection of the Holy Spirit affects my actions
My rejection of the Holy Spirit hurts him
My responsibility to others is real in helping them develop
My responsibility to Christ’s church is to keep a holy reputation
I can be deceived and I must be aware of the need to receive instruction and admonition from the Bible and others
Man’s success is not the chief aim but the glory  of Jesus through me
