Step Four thought and scripture - Day 27.
Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Having made this decision, I now obey God’s call in Scripture to make a fearless, ethical, moral, and scriptural inventory of my entire life in order to uncover all sins, mistakes, and character defects and to make a written list of every item uncovered.
As we make a fearless and moral inventory of our life we are able to see the "sinful nature" within which we are indulging. As we let the Spirit of God work in our life then we will be able to not do what the sinful nature within us desires!
