My thoughts and notes as Tim was preaching yesterday at church.
The call of God on our lives to live with integrity.
Luke 10: 2-3
As disciples of Jesus we are sent out as lambs amongst wolves.
Following Jesus is about surrendering your life. Not necessarily improving your life.
The reward far outweighs the risk but there is a risk.
There should be an element of Discernible difference in our lives.
Why? Because we’re surrounded by moral relativity these days.
Trust is the lifeblood of relationships.
Integrity provides security
Integrity is something we all have
The 4 dimensions of integrity:
1. Show consistency – integrity is about being the same on the outside as is the reality on the inside.
Matthew 23:3-1, 27-28
Same person no matter who you are with or where you are.
2. Speak truthfully – deal honestly with people. Be honest.
3. Act rightly – integrity does the right thing for no other reason than that is is right.
Integrity is doing the right thing with only God on our mind
4. Accept responsibility – accept that we have to be accountable.
Integrity is not about being perfect, it’s about acknowledging that we are not.
Living with real integrity.
The key is to submerge our lives into God’s grace
Divine enablement to achieve God’s purposes in this world.
2 Corinthians 1:12
