I Tim 2:8 “Lift up holy hands..”
Rom 6:12-17 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, 13 and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin (any part) as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
16 Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?Need For Moral Integrity
Job 31:1"I have made a covenant with my eyes ;that I should not look upon a young woman.
6 Let me be weighed on honest scales, That God may know my integrity.
9 "If my heart has been enticed by a woman, Or if I have lurked at my neighbor's door, that would be wickedness; Yes, it would be iniquity deserving of judgment. 12 For that would be a fire that consumes to destruction!Need for moral integrity
