“Core Values: Integrity”
This month as we continue our blog on Core Values let’s quickly look at something that is so crucial to every believer: Integrity. Every born-again believer is a part of the kingdom, which is based on our integrity and trust in the lordship of Jesus Christ, who is the absolute perfect king. Everything He does is perfect! Everything He says He will do, He does. It’s simply part of His character. In Matthew 11:29 Jesus invites us, His believers, to learn of Him and His righteousness. Of course the righteousness that we have in the Kingdom is not our own but that which He gives us. And this righteousness gives us the ability to live in truth and integrity in every area of our life. Righteousness is a way of life for every believer and honor is a gift given to every man and woman. How he or she lives out that honor is a direct expression of the honor that God has given him or her. I encourage you to live a life of honor and integrity and to be a person of your word. God is a god of His word and we must be as well. Be a person who does everything you say you’re going to do. Also try not to over-commit to things - but on those occasions that you miss the mark be quick to repent. We must live a life of integrity. The world lives in a vacuum unless the people of God live and stand in a place of integrity in every sphere of life.
