Word for Today: Integrity is vital.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS).
“And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause”( Job 2:3).
Greetings in the name of the Lord.
In our memory verse, we read the above testimony about Job. Job maintained his integrity in the midst of adversity. What is God’s testimony about you? In Christ, would God declare that you are upright, God fearing, and has integrity on the surface of the earth, as he said of Job? Do you maintain integrity in your dealings with others?
Integrity is the quality of being honest, upright showing probity, honour, rectitude and having strong ethical and moral principles.
In Christ, God expects absolute integrity from his children. While on earth, Jesus operated with the highest level of integrity. He was totally honest, transparent, sincere and faithful in His interactions with people. The word of God is an embodiment of the the highest moral or ethical codes, having been purified seven times according to the Psalmist: “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times”( Psalm 12:6).
Unfortunately, what do you find today in our societies, even within the body of Christ ( the Church)? All sorts of improprieties are observed, including insincerity, pretence, deceit, hypocrisy, dishonesty, cheating, unfaithfulness, fraud, injustice, seduction, manipulation etc. In most societies today, people will do anything to make money, or get a high position, including killing a fellow human being.
Brethren, to what extent are you incorruptible? How uncompromising are you in standing for truth, honesty, transparency, perfection etc. Are you a defender of the truth? If you are a believer in Christ, do you walk with God in perfection? Would you be ready to die in defence of the truth, honesty and integrity?
The word of God says:
“For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars(2 Chronicle 16:9). There are no half measures. It is either you have integrity or you do not have.
When God called Abraham, our forefather, he was told: “walk before me, and be thou perfect” (Genesis 17:1). Indeed, Abraham was a man of integrity, and was ready to sacrifice his son(Isaac), in obedience to God’s voice (Gen 22:10).
The book of Proverbs says:
“Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool” (Prov 19:1).
Beloved, maintaining integrity is indeed a matter of choice. It is choosing to side with God in truth, honesty and sincerity to the shame of the devil. The benefits of integrity are unimaginable. Choose today to live a life of holiness, purity, righteousness, sincerity, honesty, transparency, truth etc. Start by meditating and hiding the word of God in your heart so that you may not sin against God( Psalm 119:11).
The word of God says.
The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them”(Prov 11:3).
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee”(Psalm 25:21).
Stay connected to JESUS, the Word . He is the epitome of integrity. Desire knowledge and be enlightened.
Align your thoughts to His (Jeremiah 29:11).
Keep your thoughts and mind positive and healthy.
Ensure you think no evil against anyone.
Be compassionate and kind to one another.
There is a reader of this message, receive the grace to develop and maintain integrity in Jesus mighty name. Amen
Thank you Jesus.
Blood of Jesus.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
