Integrity and morals requires doing the right thing which can often times be complicated from time to time, unless you are a child of God. Then it would go with out question what you would do, if put in a situation that called for pure integrity. God requires His people to uphold a certain standard, and not have you standing there questioning what you would honestly do.
Integrity and morals are requirements for being what we call a Christian, and no, just anything won’t do. If you know what you would do if faced with troubling circumstances that requiredgodly judgment on your part, and God would be pleased with the outcome.
Many times we call ourselves Christians or refer to ourselves as born again, but our integrity, our morals, or ethics, leaves little to be desired. When God looks down on us, I can only imagine the heartbreak He must feel because, although we confess to Christianity, we lack pure integrity or good moral compass.
We are quick to attack others when our walk with Christ is in question. We will even go as far as to rip a new hole in others when they are not as we feel they should be, preferably like ourselves is our motto. So don’t dare to be different. Whether it is sexual, race, or religion. Note that people are different, and if you believe they are in sin, model yourself after God. Love the person and hate the sin.
Helpful Tools: to assist you in being a better Christian. Reading and studying Gods word, hiding Gods word in your heart, that you might not sin against Him. Fasting and prayer, upholding a Godly standard of integrity and good morals.
In the Old Testament, the Hebrew word “integrity” means “without blemish, completeness, perfection, sincerity, soundness, uprightness, wholeness.” Integrity in the New Testament means “honesty and adherence to a pattern of good integrity and morals.”
Jesus is the perfect example of a man with integrity. After He was baptized, He went into the wilderness to fast for forty days and nights, during which time Satan came to Him at His most vulnerable moment to try to break His integrity and corrupt Him. Jesus was man and God at the same time.
He was tempted in every way we are, yet He never sinned (Hebrews 4:15); that is the definition of integrity. Jesus is the only one who was ever without blemish, perfect, truthful, and always showing a pattern of integrity and morals.
ENCOURAGE YOURSELF: In the video various individuals were put to the test, just to see what they would do. Often times, we turn our heads for fear of being involved. In a world like today, is very understandable, our world has become more and more wicked. So in certain situations, it can be tricky if you get involved, but doing the right thing or living a life for Christ will come with a price.
There might come a time when you will be tested for the sake of Christ, will you be able to uphold a standard that is pleasing to God? Or will your fear or lack of integrity cause you to give way to the devil? Giving the enemy another victory.
Don’t allow the adversary to win any trials that God has giving you the tools or power to overcome, note that being a weak minded Christian goes against everything Christ stands for. He also lets us know in His word that He will not have you lukewarm, you must either be hot or cold, otherwise He will spue you out of His mouth.
(Revelation 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.)
